This week my younger daughter Debs and I travelled to Yorkshire, picked up my mum en route to attend my Uncles’ funeral. A lovely man aged 90, who’d lived an extremely full & very active life. There were a few tears, but mostly we talked about him with smiles on our faces, knowing he was now happy, at peace and re-united with his beloved wife.
He was a VERY talented artist in every aspect, ranging from his lifelong job as a designer, to his passion for watercolour & pastel painting and eventually, when his eyesight started to fade, turning his hands to wood carving.
He was commissioned by many people to paint, cats, dogs, people, landscapes, in fact he excelled at every challenge, here are a few photos of some of his work:
