Very sad that so many perished in world war 1.
You see here my grandad getting married. Previously he was wounded by a spent bullet in the battle of the Somme. It went in his leg.
Weird to think if it had have been fatal, I wouldn't be here writing this now.

'A Hare in the Harbour'

A brown hare portrayed by the lagoon ajacent to the Mudeford sandbank, Christchurch harbour.

'I've painted this hare in watercolours on watercolour paper in a different style to my usual acrylics on canvas.

Also, a little survey...'If you were to have a painting of an animal on your wall, what animal would it be?'

Ta, al

Trip to Winspit

When my mate David Meredith the sculptor came to visit last week I showed him the local countryside and watering holes. The square and compass at Worth Matravers is like stepping back in time, and as you can see it was a beautiful day for October down at Winspit quarry.

Thought I'd have a go at some quick caricatures of the rich and infamous.
