June 16th 2011 ‘Skyboat Silhouette’

A shot of the garden studio skylight of the very talented sculptor and artist, and legendary Headington Shark creator, John Buckley. There is ALWAYS something fabulous and interesting to photograph when I visit John…and usually an equally entertaining story to accompany it :o)

…So this time, I just looked up and there they were – little skyboat people, cute as a button and making fantastic silhouettes against the sky :o) ! I would love to see the twenty foot bronze version of this one day – fingers crossed that the commission comes through! :o)

P.S. The best bit of this particular story for me was the look of surprise followed by delight on John’s face when he saw this shot for the first time :o) Priceless!

An expressionistic, exploratory artist, I create without restraint or intent. I am a passionate advocate of natural learning, and this organic approach informs all of my work, giving my creations their vibrancy and spontaneity. An abiding love of nature keeps me going when my rather warped sense of humour fails. Above all, I reject the dysfunction and pain our culture perpetuates. More of the same is of no interest to me. I say “YES” to that which is life-serving: let a new paradigm emerge!
