Racehorse changes, continuing the ‘Nelson’ theme, with ‘Nelson & Racehorse’.
The Musée Lapérouse in Albi and my painting of the famous explorer Lapérouse, his ships and their great adventure.
A story I have been meaning to relate for the past couple of years.
I am prompted by the pleasure of Philippe De Laperouse, a descendent living in the USA connecting with me via Facebook.
This painting is at the time of my writing, the only meticulously researched, accurate portrayal of the Lapérouse and First Fleet ships and the approach to Botany Bay, the only authentic representation of the scene.
Consequently the museum staff asked to see my painting of “Lapérouse Entering Botany Bay” so I left the painting with them for a few days.
I was told they would love to add this work of art to their display however the museum was in the process of moving to larger premises thus no funds were available; then along came Covid 19 …

Today Prince Philip, , a great European, a great man, the Queen’s ‘strength and stay’, died age 99.
My sincere sympathy goes to the family and friends.
I have changed my title picture on my Facebook page (this splendid painting is for sale via my website) in honour of the passing of a great man.
Painted from direct observation on location, an event that happened, this painting shows (the figure in red at the helm) Britain’s Prince Philip winning a race at Cowes Week.
Very unusual at least for me, acting as an agent I sold a second hand painting today.

Rainbow Lightning Elk hey that’s a good one, wot ? a playboy? Me? 🥴
I’ve never had a fraction of the money needed to be a “playboy”.
My spirit might be willing, 😶 my bank balance not so 😄 !
⚓️Besides which, there are better ways of discovering, experiencing, enjoying, for filling one’s life than being a mere ‘Playboy’ or ‘Good Time Girl’.
