Some of my dad's art stuff
« on: September 22, 2018, 08:05:04 PM »


Hi all went round to see my mum today before we go on hols tomorrow and she asked if I wanted Some of his drawings. Of course I said yes, these (including the planes) are all drawn on postcards.







These are nothing compared to what my dad was capable of (most of his good stuff was sold for drink) I am so sad about that he was such an amazing artist (he got it from his dad, you know all those chocolate boxes with the winter scenes or summer fields or the buiscuit tins, that was his dad's job, he painted  those types of scenes for them) my dad was truly amazing, it's such a shame the demon got a hold of him.

I like the poem ‘Smiling’ ...
Do you do artwork yourself ?
