Another example of your many talents, this impressive oil-on-canvas work is entitled ‘My Spiritual Education (King’s College, Cambridge)’.
Thanks for sharing it with us, Julie. I’ll leave you to introduce it, but will first add that there have been a few more additions made to the gallery, so do take a look and feel free to share any thoughts.
This is how I saw King’s College from Queen’s Road on my visit to Cambridge back in the summer of 2002. I was hunting feverishly for this college, which seemed to be hidden amongst the tree-lined Queen’s Road, and on passing a gap in the trees, my jaw dropped at such beauty. I tried to capture that vision from my mind’s eye when I started painting it at home.
I have named my painting ‘My Spiritual Education’ for a few reasons, the main reason being that David Gilmour and some of the members of Pink Floyd came from the town of Cambridge. I have always likened David Gilmour and Pink Floyd to my teachers as I have learned a myriad of things from their music and philosophies – you name it, from mysticism to politics. As I received my education without “my teachers” physically being available, I learned it spiritually.
You should see my library because of this band!
Cambridge is also known as the “seat of learning” and with King’s College Chapel being a “chapel”, one can state that it is spiritual.
My sincere thanks again to everyone who has made a contribution to this special part of David’s site; I hope you’ve enjoyed it as much as I have.
