Latest news from the Artist...
At the beginning of July, I had the privilege of painting the inaugural cricket match on Dr James Hull's private ground at his home in Wales. This is a stunning location and the wicket, although hampered by weeks of rain, stood up well to the onslaught. James has raised thousands of pounds for charity with his team 'The Drillers' and for 30 years on the nursery ground at Lord's, he sponsored Founders Day. James is the proud owner of many of my original cricket paintings which he has either commissioned or bought. It is always a pleasure to paint for James - his enthusiasm and appreciation knows no bounds.
Another pretty ground is Braemore near Salisbury. Becky Hopkinson gave her husband a surprise; she asked me to paint an ink/watercolour wash of the 20/20 match arranged for his 40th birthday. This was village cricket at its best - children and dogs all joined in and the overs flashed by. A great day was had by all in the most glorious weather.
And now to England - they really do let themselves down. They still have not learnt that dropped catches lose matches. They should have won the series against Pakistan but until they concentrate in the field it will be the same old story.
It is worth thinking about having your ground or match painted next year. There may be a special occasion or an anniversary and there is no better way for it to be remembered than painted on site when it is happening. On the other hand, if you have photographs of any cricket matches that have already taken place, I can always produce a painting. Please give me a ring or send me an email to discuss all the possibilities. You will find my contact details at the foot of this page.
