This was a piece that came from out of the blue,
and it hasn't had hours of agonising and planning.
On Thursday I put the van in for its MOT, so had to walk the last mile to work.
I stuck my earphones in and wandered along without any real cares,
just enjoying the first signs of spring appearing.
The music playing, at random, was OMD-"Architecture & Morality",
and somewhere at the back of my mind the seeds of this took root;
no real plan, just the idea of doing something sort of industrial and grungy.
The canvas already had a drab background on it from a previous piece that was recycled
(steampunk moth, which I was never 100% happy with),
so it was just a case of adding some detail.
I chose 75 as OMD was the abbreviation for engine oils when I was serving,
and 75 was the most common one.
Simple things, as they say.
