What’s happening ….Mapping our Journey….

Mapping our Journey…. our latest venture which is quite apt.  We have been travelling for almost 3 years now covering many of the canals and rivers of the England and Wales.  This has been an interesting journey of discovery, painting, drawing, photographing, making small videos, writing poetry… which has opened up the opportunity to draw on The Lockmaster Maps.  Licenced to draw has a nice ring to it… and that is exactly what I am doing under licence to Lockmaster Maps.  The first in the series was The Cheshire Ring…

As we came through Birmingham I completed the The Black Country Canals as part of the journey adding places of interest as we traveled.  The Third in the Series will be The Four Counties Ring with others to be come available as we gain momentum and will be part of our journey.

After leaving Birmingham – We are now en-route to Liverpool to see the Biennial Arts Festival as is in now full swing… The city comes to life supporting local and international artists.  We will be there at the end of August for one week; mooring in Albert Docks which will be quite an adventure for us.  September will see our plans are to be part of the Leeds & Liverpool Bi-centenary, we will be joining in with the celebrations as an when along the route from Liverpool to Leeds.  Creating visual maps of some of the iconic images you might see along the journey.  Touching base with the Leigh Canal Festival – my home town which we are to be part of 9th to 11th September.  Leigh, Lancashire.
