While we were in Dubrovnik this year, we found an exhibition of decorative fabrics by Ottavio MIssoni. Missoni was born in Dubrovnik and it was as the founder of the Missoni fashion house that I knew his name, but the wall hangings and rugs were a real visual delight.
Welcome to my blog. I'm a professional artist whose work is mainly derived from the study of towns and cities. For many years I've worked mainly in oil paint, but am trying my hand with acrylics at present. I'm still very much a figurative painter aiming at some kind of modern representation. I believe in the continuing value of painting and follow in its long and honourable tradition.
For one year only, I'm posting my Dad's Diary entries from 1947, the year I was born.
