To bring you a better experience, both my web sites are being refined.
To bring you easier navigation, clearer texts, simplified buying, my ‘marine art’ web site www.frickers.co.uk/art may briefly be off line at times over the next few months.
www.frickers.co.uk/art is undergoing its first major upgrade since 2003.

If the sites give you any problems keep calm, do have confidence in us.
Don’t hesitate to fire a gun, hoist a signal.

I’m now back to what passes for ‘normal’ here which includes I’ve resumed painting [The Titanic Twins], designing two new marine paintings and writing the book on my work requested by Bloomsbury of London.
I’ve several enquiries to follow up.
The most unusual of which is for a ‘Halifax’ as in Handley Page heavy bomber.
