Fish and Chips – Kind Of

fish in parsley sauce – impressionist by inky.

The noble fish sat on my plate

hadn’t had a battering

it had been enjoying a bath like Cleopatra

getting all warm and tasty

Upon leaving the path it was

wrapped up in a coat of green

to enhance its wonderful flavour

and rested on a bed of buttery potato

And while it lay there in on the plate

lying in its luxury

a cohort of peas stood on a potato ridge

to keep it safe from wondering eyes

But alas all were devoured

in the haze of white and green

grappled apart by trident and sword

by the chef and his guests

Priceless

Salford 3rd September 2017

Priceless

its interesting the way things are valued

DSC_0008_1

I’ve returned to this pic i took at the local art gallery, currently displaying some pieces from the Pilkington factory, once of Salford, now St. Helens.

Of course , every item has its price tag.  There is a replacement value for Insurance purposes….initial cost of production….blah blah.

The artist will want their recognition of course, the irony ? Their work’s rises upon death – thanks to some VERY Shrewd investors.

But the cost to replace the artwork – is priceless – for it would take a great deal of time, skill and blood sweat and tears to replace the artwork behind the glass panel.  And once the artisan has passed, you could copy his/her work…but it would never match the original….it would be a pale imitation

drop it….and it might get its value back….buried and recovered decades later….

So, with that in mind – here’s a pic of a local northern landmark from a local artist (you might know him, you’re reading his stuff!!!) – lets call it £10 for a print
