Hello Tracy, a pleasure to reconnect with you thanks for the invitation.
Congratulations on your C.V., you have achieved much, worthwhile and impressive work.
I still have the ‘Ice Maiden’ painting and 4 prints left looking for a good home. Ice Maiden has been a useful flagship picture at exhibitions.
How wonderful to hook up again.
My ‘Ice Maiden’ (signed numbered print) still has pride of place in my house! Now then I may have a weird and wonderful story to tell you – do you know someone who lives on Stembridge Hill on the Gower Penninsula?
I love a good yarn, a weird and wonderful story so asked Tracy to tell her tale.
Of course please do put that on your website. I love the painting so much. It truly captures the ‘essence’ of Maiden and the Southern Ocean.
OK so the story! I grew up on Gower and my daughter and I go back regularly to stay with friends in Llangennith. On the way home a couple of years ago I hit rock on Stembridge and my tyre exploded. There are virtually no houses on that road as it is so rural but I managed to get to a driveway and pulled in. There was a man there and he very kindly helped and offered the use of his phone as there is no reception there. He recognised me and said that he was on the Maria Asumpta when it sank (I can’t remember his name sadly) and asked if I knew you and that you had done a painting for him and he knew of the Ice Maiden painting!
