    Another Way Home

    I keep painting versions of this painting. Some better, some much worse! I think it must be embedded somewhere in my collective unconscious!

    I am a long term and huge fan of Ursula Le Guin. I think I have read just about everything she wrote, most of them several times and i always learn something new each time. She has been a good friend, mentor and spiritual guide through the years: through her writing of course, I never met her. I did however write to her on her eightieth birthday to say thank you for all that she had been in my life and i got a beautiful hand written and illustrated letter in reply. I was so pleased I had written. So, moving right along Ö

    I hadnít thought of Ged in Lookfar but it certainly does remind me of that now you mention it. This painting i did several years ago, I was thinking of Ged.

    Thatís so nice she wrote back to you herself
    Though from what I hear of her as a person, perhaps not too surprising she took the time to do so!
    Her work dose settle into ones memory, it was of Ged I was thinking when I scribbled this over breakfast one morning some years back

    She was a truly remarkable writer and human being, i think.

    Thatís a lovely sketch of Lookfar, especially as it was done at breakfast! You are such a stylish draughtsman. Do you mind if I print that out? Actually, come to think of it, it would make a lovely bookplate!
