Drake and slavery

Knocking down statues has become the ‘in’ thing among part of our population.

Now- Wow we have a proposal to knock off Sir Francis Drake, remove his statue from Plymouth Hoe.

'Golden Hinde'
Drake’s ‘Golden Hinde’

If you disagree I suggest you sign the petition to keep the statue on site in place.

We might as well knock down the Pyramids as they were allegedly built by slave labour.

Such vandalism would be bad for tourism !

Each aspect of the painting exceeds my expectations.  While your paintings are beautiful to look at over the internet, the actual painting has a warmth that can only be felt by seeing the real thing. I also had a reaction I had not expected. My father passed away from a stroke when I was seven. He loved to paint and I remember watching and being around him while he painted. When I opened the box and revealed the painting, I got the smell that I had not had since I was seven. I guess it was both the varnish and paint but it was warm and wonderful.
Thanks for a great experience,
Eric
P.S. I’ll contact you when we have it installed at the new house. Maybe we can get a Skype session and I’ll give you a tour of its new home. I looked at the flags on the stern and it spells out MQKJ. Any significance?

Have you ever thought, “I’d love a painting like that one?”

Give me a call or email ! ?

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 .
