Brixham's Man and Boy Sculpture
One of my philosophies is always about trying to give something back when I can. After spending many years in the corporate world, I'm always thankful (if a little stressed), by being a self-employed artist.
I will spare you the preamble about moving to Brixham, but want to highlight something very important in my life. Because I get the opportunity to play with cameras, and write I feel very lucky in life. I can sit and watch the trawlers go out, and they do, in all weathers!. Sometimes though they don't come back or they do, but with great loss.
For a long time, I lived in ignorance about where my food came from. Supermarkets, shops, stalls. BUT, how does the fish we eat actually arrive on our plate. The sea is a very unforgiving place to work, and the trawlers of Brixham have had their share of loss.
So when I moved to Brixham, and walked around the town, I saw and fell in love with the Sculpture by Elisabeth Hadley. She was commissioned to produce this piece of art as a memorial for all the lives lost at sea.
If you are reading this blog then you will have seen the rest of the images for Brixham, and I am now pleased to say that Elisabeth has given me permsion to release this Art House image with the same title.
The important thing is that I do not and will not make money from this image when it is sold as a card, print, canvas, and Mast Acrylic. Any profit that I would have made will be donated monthly to the RNLI.
I've been very fortunate to live my dreams of being a photographer/artist/writer/presenter. There are some who never got that choice, losing their lives at sea.
