I’ve been developing ideas around the idea of boundaies in the last few months.  This small work on paper (around 20x20cm) painted en plein air (a method I have recently returned to and have gained much enjoyment and creative stimulus from) shows delapidated Cornish ‘hedges’.  These hedges are actually constructed of granite stones infilled with earth.  Sometimes the granite is completely obliterated with vegetation, and because of the clean air here the stone is almost always covered in a variety of lichens.  Many of these hedges become delapidated with the passing of time and the field boundaries become much less distinct.  There is something around the idea of broken boundaries which fascinates me.
