I found a long lost folder under a bed the other day and blew the dust off some memories. It all started at school...
"My Friend Linda"
...then became decidedly surreal during college days
This one has a title:
Art seems to be in our genes - J J's painting of hanging hams is a bit surreal too.
His portraits are full of nervous energy.
His brother's work is more abstract.
1999 was a particularly creative year for J W (see below!)
And we'll never forget that dear old H loved the sea...
... because he painted it constantly.
I have searched our genealogy for other creative family members, but in vain - perhaps we mutated! The nearest link to art and antiques that I can find is my distant cousin, Professor Gus Shurvell, a chemist and a specialist in Fine Art conservation.
