Chinese Nosh

My Dad would have called this ‘Chinese Nosh’ so maybe it’s Chinese with Jewish undertones?

Chinese nosh
My ‘artist’s impression’ of Chinese nosh, a Chinese dinner.
Seemed to me like a good idea for a relatively chilly evening outside.
Not brill, not bad, quite quick to make (40 minutes?) edible if washed down well.
Shutters closed, house snugged down, I chose a favourite of mine, a wine that is cool, pale amber, a luminous white with a delicate scent.
This is a wine with aromas of citrus and white flowers.
Subtle and delicious in the mouth, Chevalier de Fauvert, Comté Tolosan.
A good companion for my attempt at Chinese nosh.

53 x 91.5 cm (21″ x 36″)  ‘Nelson’s Frigates‘, this is so called because rather oddly, briefly, Nelson commanded all four frigates, two French built, two Spanish and there hangs an intriguing story which I’ll gradually reveal as the painting is completed.

A Trafalgar surprise

Trafalgar Port
Port Presentation
Trafalgar and an unsought, unexpected thank you for a job well done.
Carefully packed, beautifully presented these vintage ports arrived by courier today 😃!
Two questions, why the gift and who to open these with ???
While I’m fond of red port I’ve never tried white port so this will be fun.


The Trafalgar Way : some way now well astern I was asked and honoured to be one of the judges of a national competition by The 1805 Club for children painting on the theme of ‘The Trafalgar Way’, a route now marked, celebrated and recommence on official Ordnance Survey maps.
The Trafalgar Way competition objective was to widen appreciation among children and their parents of the age of Nelson and of its place in our history upon which our lives are built .

When it’s touch dry I’ll finish this painting.
There are still quite a lot of modifications I wish to make … so it’s not yet on either of my two websites.
Made on ‘speculation’, this painting measures 30.5 x 45.8 cm, 12″ x 18″.
It is based upon time with my son camping together behind the beach on the cote de Landais at Vieux Beaucoup.
