I'm sorry that it has become rather an obsession of late and I'll try to stop boring you all with it. I think by now you know what it's all about, so I will try to blog about other things as well from now on.
MY BROTHER THE ARTIST.
Well, he is not a professional artist, but he has enjoyed painting for as long as I can remember, since his early teens. One of his first jobs was with Sylvia and Gerry Anderson who made the Thunderbirds series (if any of you are old enough to remember!). He was very young and inexperienced but he helped to design the sets for the TV series. He has had a few other jobs since those days, mostly in silk-screen printing, and I can remember him designing football club pennants for one company.
All this is so long ago so I don't recall much of what he did during his working life, but I do know that his love of painting has been with him always.
He has never been particularly confident about his works of art, and reluctant to share them, which I think is a great shame, because I think they are good and I am very proud of him.
Here are three paintings that he did recently, of scenes in Corfu, where he and his family have been holidaying for many years.
