Drawn from a snapshot taken by my daughter with her iPhone of a spread in her local newspaper (Possibly through a glass window?) concerning a Glossop Fire Service public relations event held in the centre of the town. Her reason for taking this picture is that the small child hiding in it it is my grand daughter, Poppy. I liked the strange, Ed Burraish, quality of this image; the odd perspectives and hazy, non-connectiveness of some of the elements. I also like the rather anachronistic telephone boxes.

I have been considering displaying the acrylic on canvas painting, a transcendent portrait of me, I commissioned from Kathy Pentek earlier this year, within a trompe l'oeil frame on the living room wall. I made this drawing to try to get a preview of how the painting and its frame will look when I have finished painting the frame.
