Earlier in the year I was invited by the Medway Swale Estuary Partnership to contribute a piece for Mudlark, their newly formatted and now annual publication. At the time, I was thinking about creating some pieces to submit to 'Art in the Church' at St Mary's Church in the Marsh, Higham. I felt that the two projects complimented each other well, and even though they were separate in themselves I decided to use one exercise to inspire the other.

I wrote 'Walking to work'; about a day sketching and painting along the Saxon Shore Way on a Dawn to Dusk walk, the results of which form a body of work including those submitted for possible inclusion in the exhibition at St. Mary's.

A shortened version of the final piece of writing has now been published in the Mudlark pg. 13-15 and is available to read online here or here and print copies are available also.

The full version with several additional pieces of artwork will be posted on the website in the future.
