theres one side of my bedroom that has become my own private gallery.
mickey mouse meets mountainous hills
one wall, contains a print of a local salford artist, joe Coffey…the connection tween the artist and myself ? We went to school together. I went to one of his shows at the community art gallery in Langworthy…a short distance from where I live . We had a brief reunion whilst I saw his works and I picked up a signed print to help an old mate out.
the pic … tranquility…. is of the irwell and one of the green areas (possibly peel park) that it runs alongside
i picked up the next pic as I picked up some bedroom shelves in Warrington. It’s a print of a Walt Disney cartoon…black and white…vanilla washed….mickey mouse and his dog Pluto, it raises a smile when friends come round.
The third pic…isn’t really a pic…it’s a mirror…but it’s embossed with a favourite character of mine…that bouncy friend of Winnie the Pooh…Tigger….I look at him as my reflection comes back….art with a dual purpose.
a picture of a mountain side by the artist c.todd overlooks the place I’m currently writing at. And this is a real painting. I picked it up from a craft fair in one of the local towns, and is of a mountainside, could be the Lake District, could be the peaks…could even be Japan..i like the colours that run through it
