"Very windy but fine. Took Doris to Gateshead Odeon to see Bob Hope in My Favourite Brunette." My Favourite Brunette is a 1947 romantic comedy and film noir parody starring Bob Hope and Dorothy Lamour.
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.
