"Snow still lying. (3 wks 2 days). Got some coal & coke today." As an aside, I note the little epigram at the foot of the diary page: "Those who govern best make the least noise." What a noisy government we have at the moment.
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.
