Bird's Eye View

Iris Howitt

A 360-degree roof-top view, painted from a series of photos, taken when we were having some roof maintenance carried out.
Painted in 2013, each one of this art tryptic would be quite different if done again today.
The painting on the right - the long low building of St John's Primary School has now been demolished and a new park established.
The middle painting - the tall Portobello High School has also been demolished and a new St John's Primary built on the land.
Finally, on the left - the conifer tree in one of the gardens has been cut down and replaced by a small cherub statue.
I am so glad to have preserved the memory of our original landscape - and perhaps it is now time get back out on the roof and take some new photos.
