Runaway

Del Shannon

As I walk along, I wonder
A-what went wrong with our love
A love that was so strong

And as I still walk on, I think of
The things we’ve done together
While our hearts were young

I’m a-walkin’ in the rain
Tears are fallin’ and I feel the pain
Wishin’ you were here by me
To end this misery

I wonder
I wah-wah-wah-wah-wonder
Why
Why, why, why, why, why
She ran away

And I wonder
Where she will stay
My little runaway
A-run, run, run, run, runaway

I’m a-walkin’ in the rain
Tears are fallin’ and I feel the pain
Wishin’ you were here by me
To end this misery

And I wonder
I wah-wah-wah-wah-wonder
Why
Why, why, why, why, why
She ran away

And I wonder
Where she will stay
My little runaway
A-run, run, run, run, runaway
A-run, run, run, run, runaway
A-run, run, run, run, runaway

The Field February 26th 2021. I’m really trying to stop this Field project and I have tried several times. On a day like this I see the clouds and the blue sky and it just compels me to go take just one more picture. I have as you may have noticed collected quite a lot of ceramics, glass, pottery, iron, and fossils over the 20 years this is now the 21st year. I have a Perspex box and today I cut a backing for it. It is filled with the glass and ceramics and the pottery. My idea is to mount it on a post so I can take photos and document it as a conclusion to the 20 year observation of this Warwickshire field. Brian a neighbour gave me this spoon today and said I found this in The Field. Its a Disney product I added it to my collection.

My idea is fulfils most if not all the criteria required. On New years day 1986 Artist Mary Newcomb, then aged 64, began to keep a diary. She wrote in its opening pages: ‘I wanted to remind ourselves that  in our haste  in this century we may not give time to pause and look – and may pass on our way unheeding’. Using a Sketch book not as an exact day to day diaryUse it as an aid to thought and observation.Use to not only draw but to note down words poems or thoughts.

By using a sketch book you can gain a greater depth to your art and your life. I have used sketch books this way since I was in my twenties.Marcel Duchamp always said” Pay Attention”. During this long period of lockdown I have continued writing thoughts and poetry and observing.I have continued to take photographs and added them to my blog and posted them on Instagram.

The blog is a great diary on its own and adds a further dimension to my life as an artist.During my travels I have taken these thoughts words and images and put some of them on canvas.I call the series Postcards to Myself. No materials required.

Sketchbooks and sitting and drawing observing the minutia is a massive aid to wellbeing.
I would take the viewer a small part of the CV site not the main house as such but the nooks and crannies.

I would explain the beauty and wellness feeling of sketchbooks.

How writing and drawing can lead to a bigger ideas if wanted.

How Mary Newcomb kept a sketchbook and a diary to aid her work.

The age group would be from early teens to whatever age.

The outcome would benefit any student of art based projects, prose, poetry, English in fact it’s a life skill on its own.
