My visit to Plymouth, looking back as I try to catch up on work at Itzac, went quite well including some good PR; the bad news was getting up early to be with Gordon Sparks on BBC Radio Devon the good news, Gordon Sparks Sparkie is great fun to be interviewed by,
There will also be a a piece in the Plymouth Evening Herald ~ (circulation about 250,000) by Tristan Nicholls of whom some including David Folley say “the best journalist on the Herald” about the new large marine painting Plymouth Cattewater and the invitation to exhibit next year at the European Parliament in Brussels.
The photo here is a different view of the the Cattewater, River Plym, Royal Plymouth Corinthian Yacht Club from which I used to sail in former family days and looks towards the east shore and my former home at Plymstock.
Besides visiting familiar places and there is more to tell!
On the recommendation of Ian Criddle and Nigel Overton who viewed the original marine painting of Plymouth Cattewater, I have a probable invitation to exhibit at the Plymouth City Museum who are interested in piping the European Parliament to the post.
It was also said having failed to exhibit most of Plymouth’s famous artists during their life time ~ hang on , Plymouth’s famous artists you querie that?
OK, here are a very few, Sir Joshua Reynolds, Beryl Cook, Robert Lencavitz, Alan Cotton, Tim Thompson; the list is a long one and visitors who loved Plymouth include J M W Turner.
Thus I consider to be even mentioned in the same breath as those people an honour I am thrilled to merit!
