Abstract 230 ‘I see music’

From the early years of the twentieth century  the development, first,  of electronic instruments and then of other new ways of making, recording and transmitting sound, caused a rethink of the definition of the word ‘music’.  Such developments led to some composers creating works that could not be adequately communicated through conventional notation.  Various forms of graphic notation were adopted

This image, although it is primarily intended to be a visual abstract, suggests perhaps a relationship with graphic notation.  Maybe you can imagine the mood and the qualities of sound the hieroglyphics and symbols suggest.  I think Kandinsky might have been interested!



The pattern was derived from  reflections on water.

When you drive through a storm

After an horrendous drive through storms and gale force winds it was an enormous relief when the familiar silhouette and lights of home gradually emerged


Safe home

Standing alone

Standing alone


Yes, it is a Neolithic standing stone  –  but somehow there is a stillness and quietness about the scene that suggests to me a young shepherdess tending her sheep.
