'many rivers to cross' is one of my favourite songs ...

and i really should say that the jimmy cliff version is my top, and it is, on some days, but jah know, i also really like the UB40 version, alot, especially the electronic opening ...

I know right!

it's a story about a jamaican coming to england - but the allegory is about the rivers of babylon - wandering I am lost ...

so, here we were in london, and we crossed the thames to get to the venue, a show, with saunders fine art and mourant, which was in the oxo tower, we crossed the river looking for god knows what.

and this was roughly the view looking back ... looking out of the window of the gallery space the barge was heading up the river, at the point where the river and the sea stopped mixing ... where  the foreign and the local became one.

the sky was grey and dull though, not rich and blue, but as I was sitting and drawing this, I think at the time in italy, tanya posted a pic looking up at the sky, a gorgeous blue and so I stole it ... and used it ...

allegory of sorts ...
