Blanket Bog (North Pennine Moor 43)
0, oil on canvas SOLD
122 x 91 cm

Currently lost. Unframed, 3cm deep edges painted dark brown. High up on a North Pennine moorland watershed a low sky rolls in from the west with clouds back-lit by the sun. Here and there gaps in the clouds reveal bright light beyond. The moors are an alternative world where humans cannot survive easily but which for wildlife hovers between abundance in summer and cold wasteland in winter. Beneath the surface lies a 10 000 year blanket of accumulated peat covering the glacial clay. To walk on this and hear the redshank is to be carried away from everyday human concerns.
