Entertain, Inspire, Inform

Robin Knox-Johnston, an inspiring sailor, a real man, a role model, a film worth watching? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WdIIYr1GdIs&feature=emb_share.

I feel honoured to have been commissioned to make #paintings 3 times, “Roaring Forties“, “The Clipper Way” and “Dumra departing Bombay“.

I produced prints for the first two paintings made for Sir Robin #Knox#Johnston which we both signed [a few copies are still available], and I am proud to be considered one of his friends.

‘Roaring Forties’ as framed

Roaring Forties” subsequently is and continues to be reproduced in journals world wide and is a proven influential painting.

Robin still is a considerable influence and benefit for many lives, mine included.

Some years ago Robin and I were discussing our roles in life.

Thank YOU

Thank you for being my friends, wish you were here…
I consider myself very fortunate and made sure a glass was raised to all my absent friends in particular those of you who phoned or sent best wishes via the internet.
You are all much appreciated, I think I’m lucky to be in contact with so many remarkable people. Knowing, communicating with, you folk helps get me through my sometimes difficult days.
Wish you were here… I learned more about organising a party when living alone, mostly via my mistakes.
Everyone of my guests contributed to the eventual success of the evening, we ate well, drank well and all agreed this won’t be the last time.

Our weather systems as any sailor can tell you, have an untidy habit of not following the neat smooth curves of prediction beloved of economists and scientist.
A habit of townies and city folk who don’t understand that terms like ‘#floodplain‘ are a warning not a cute pastoral anachronism .

Rhoda Mary remembered

A lovely Facebook surprise today.
I was distracted enough to change course to investigate the page https://www.facebook.com/Rhoda-Mary-Project-1543742422567487/ where I found an attempt is being made to return the wreck of the famous “Rhoda Mary” to Cornwall.
 
This is meaningful for me for a number of reasons.
Many years astern Frank Trebilcock asked me to paint “A Dispute Settled” for him, the picture I’ve posted here.
Rhoda Mary & Katie Cluett
“A Dispute Settled”
