This is the last of the oldies that I've been using as Insta-filler while my lino printing gives way to fatherly duties. Back in 1992 I drew this picture of the 700-ish year old Church of St Mary in the historic village of Orton Waterville, Peterborough, not as a college piece but as a gift to my girlfriend-at-the-time's mum: a memento of the church in which she was married. The plan was to give it as a birthday gift some weeks or months later, but said girlfriend dumped me before that happened. I wish I could say that my 19 year old dumped ass did the honourable thing and gifted it regardless, instead of thinking f*** you and keeping it, but here it is and there you go. I didn't care about my ex's annoyance, but her mum was a nice lady who'd only ever been kind to me so I still feel a tiny residual trace of guilt. Not enough to track her down though, it's not like I'm losing sleep over it.

Sgraffito decoration in St Mary's Church in Rattery. This is a later applied 19th century decoration of striking effect. It is a plasterwork covering that has then had coats of paint built up of dark red, blue, and yellow ochre. When first completed it must have been really vivid but has now toned down to a lovely gentle pastel colour scheme. This interior is a real gem, and is set off by the 15th century granite arches superbly.
