….  it is taking shape its own way ……?  I have had this  particular idea bubbling away in my head for about 8 or 9 years – ever since Robert and I bought Hawkcombe Cottage.
               LARGE MAP – acrylic on paper 1.5 x 1.25  ?nearly finished state.
 I have long wanted to describe the Journey from our old house in Frenchmill Lane to  what was a building site and is now our home.

 

SQUARE MAP 50 X 60 mixed media/paper

All of us are on a journey of course and the external can be a symbol for  the internal. So in a literal and metaphorical sense this idea has long been with me!

The actual catalyst was the practical  need to be able to identify the field where a cow or sheep was needing attention came to a head and I began with doing a map for Compton Abbas and Twyford Villages with the field names – I am gathering  contributions from various people who know the local landscape well – I have already a sense that the names of the fields change over the years.

I will be taking the maps to the Village Hall on the morning of  Saturday December 7 to show people and to gather more names.
