Like the old lady who sent me a letter on flowery notepaper soon after the unveiling of my figures for
saying…Your sculpture will always be loved by the people of this town. Sowerby Bridge
A few weeks ago, I received an e-mail from one of my life class students saying…Don’t give up, your classes make life so much more bearable.
And, just yesterday a text message to say…Thank you so much. I love the painting, I love it!
I suppose, like the poet Robert Service, I’m just a lowbrow and hence attracted to his poem:
To show you how lowbrow I am,
I’ll readily admit,
When reading Mary and her Lamb,
I wish I’d written it.
Likewise, the simpler the sketch the more profound the meaning…like this one.
