Paintings - Sub-Series
In 1982 I moved from a town in Norfolk to rural Cumbria and, back then, most people working in the Eden Valley, Cumbria were involved in some way with farming.
Working within the constraints of a theme such as 'People at Work' can, ironically, give the artist a freedom. You wake up in the morning knowing what you are doing and you get on with it. So, I chose to look at Hill Farming. The environment in which hill farming takes place includes farm labour, but also of course, the landscape and animals.
