Here is a photograph SG took on his return to England having been living in Pennsylvania,US for the last year. It was his intention to come back to Yorkshire and paint some rugged, classic views of the rural landscape...it has taken a while to find the focus necessary so the Otleyobs group has been integral in acting as a new catalyst in the production of new work.
All members of the group meet up every Wednesday evening to share creative undertakings made in the previous week, beer is always available and after two months of meeting we have looked at each other's writings, paintings, photography, landscape designs, sketchbooks, notions of trespass aswell as having had conversations ranging from Banksy's stencilling to the application of computers in modern day society !
This painting was made by SG before he went over to the States to paint in July 2006....feels like he is starting to carry on where he left off thanks to Otleyobs.
