whatever that is…I guess that was our day…so much so that mid afternoon trapped in a road diversion scenario in the far east of Leicestershire Simon and myself decided we had properly topped up our ‘rural reserves’ for a bit. So we resolved to cool it a bit on the Painting The Town Red project (not least as I’m getting seriously behind on the paintings). Besides it was perishing out there.
I’ve tried before explaining the rationale behind these rural excursions but its hard to explain what I’m driving at. Its the quirky visual incidents that meld together with other impressions, feelings, thoughts and ideas that ‘inform’ the image that results and these elements can, most often are, the base material and might easily be viewed as just ‘normal’. Though, as here in the churchyard at Eastwell, this suggests that in certain contexts things can be quite unusual in some ways. I’m assuming its a bug hotel but why such a thing is necessary here in such a rural setting I can’t particularly imagine.
