shellness-harriershellnessharrier Uplifted by this piece of art yesterday afternoon. I found it completely by accident, painted on the side of a machine gun emplacement on the Eastern tip of the Isle of Sheppey guarding the Swale approaches. It cannot be seen from any centres of population; it stands well away from any classified road. You need to walk around a marshland to reach it. Unsigned, with no care about reaching an audience, no interest in publicity; free of any self promotional gambit [You know to whom I refer]. It has been painted for the sheer, simple joy of it. Perhaps more art should be produced this way…
[and in the marsh behind, I did see an actual Hen Harrier hunting; -perfect antidote to the morning’s news!]
