Christmas I went to Padstow for my first art lesson. They were to be held at
the seaman’s mission just up from the harbour commissioner’s office, I was the only one there apart from the teachers.
They showed me where I was to sit and I told them that I knew nothing about painting but that I was interested in art and
I was a great fan of the artist Robert Lenkiewicz. By this time a few more people had turned up. We all set up our equipment
and started with a few simple exercises as the lady teacher came over to me I said to her that I wanted to learn to draw a
sheet of galvanise, that’s a strange request she said what do you want to draw that for are you going to build a shed?
I said that I was doing a painting and that this was going to be one of my symbols,
but as for anything else, I’m afraid my lips are sealed.
I want to
be a symbol abstract painter, and over the years I have heard many great stories so I have decided to portray these stories
in art and paint them with the use of Cornish hieroglyphics. There will be a series of seven and each painting has its own
story painted in symbols. The stories were the best stories told in the crib hut over a period of two years, and would shock
most men. After that I am going to paint seven mystical and religious works.
I have finished
my first work and you can see it below. I feel that I had help with this my first canvas from Robert Lenkiewicz, and Leonardo
de Vinci. There auras were with me, well with my eye sight I need as much help as I can get!
I will keep
you all posted on how it’s going, but that’s it for now,
