Newgate Street (oil on canvas, 35.5 x 26 ins))
Do you ever get the feeling that you've jinxed yourself? However irrational it may seem, however foolishly superstitious, does it ever seem to you that by telling everyone some good news about something about to occur, you somehow prevent it from happening?
I picked up a copy of the Chronicle tonight and found they'd run with a story about the guy whose pictures are hanging next to mine at the Gallery. I knew they'd photographed them, but apparently he was in the happy position of being at the Gallery when they were there and was able to be interviewed.
Now they've done that, I think it unlikely they'll run anything about me.
Poot. If only I'd kept my m........
Anyway, this is one of the pictures they probably won't be showing.
