A memory of midwinter.

Charcoal and acrylic on paper.
So I am walking again next year in Montrose. A new line has been drawn on the map which will be entirely new apart from where it crosses the last one, and takes in the towns major employer and the football ground. Really looking forward to it – lots of ideas . And, I will be walking a line in Edinburgh, or Leith to be precise later next year. I am working with Fidra in North Berwick on a show probably this time next year. I spent some years living in Leith, both my boys were born at the Eastern General, so it will be interesting to return and re-evaluate the landscape and how it might have changed. The line will pass the tenements where we lived and end at the docks.I think I may find it has changed hugely but then again, maybe not as Leith will always be resolutely Leith, like Montrose, the reason for its being is its connection to the sea.

    This is fabulous drawing Dominique, well done. I love your ability to strike so quickly, and be so immediate and alive in that very second.
    This incredible sense of decisiveness that you have honed so well, with these drawings. It is…from were I stand your greatest asset, in your drawing toolbox.

    What a pure artist you are…I am on that road back to that place and to myself where I would make such things too…drawing is so neglected by the greater public.
    I have been… artistically sick, so to speak for a quite a while. But works like yours make me remember. And works as an innoculation against the germ that stops me from creating. And I thank you for that…you are an inspiration.
    Please don’t get famous on me now…
