Untitled (as yet)

Starting a series of portraits. Aiming to achieve content with  meaning, feelings, thoughts. I don't want "empty" pictures.  Although painting close family are never "empty" pictures, because there is always  an emotional connection between the sitter and the artist. I'm starting with pencil drawings and will move on to oil on canvas. This is the fisrt sketch taken from a photograph. I take hundrends of photographs which I use to develop the portraits. This is from a photo of my father not taken by myself  but by my son who's also a keen photographer.

"Swallow"

Neon swallow (as seen in a dark room)
"True hope is swift and flies with swallows' wings,
kings it makes gods and meaner creatures kings".
W Shakespeare
This work is not new, I designed it and had it made 3 years ago as part of my art project concerning immigration and identity.
It was exhibited at Boninghton Gallery at Nottingham Trent
University, UK.
