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” 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.
