Craigavon. 1985.

I think my daughter in this photo (taken by the artist Colin McGookin) had reacted to one to many art openings. The artists in my studio group usually supported each other by attending the various group
and solo shows. This was uplifting as these were dangerous times and that moral support was important.
In the background is a work of mine called "Rocket Man", at that time home made mortars were being used
to target the security force, sometimes inaccurate, they affected the local community.
