Hello,
After probate on my Fathers estate, this wonderful painting will have pride of place on our wall.
I have lusted after this painting for many years, only to be told  'not for sale'.
Hope you all enjoy this painting as much as I do.

Jonathan.

  5. Your late father's painting always reminded me of stained glass with heir intensity of light and colour. I often have the paintings I downloaded from Gerald's site as my desktop. Enjoy yours!

  10. I like this one very much, Jonathan. The hull is very evocative of a whale's tail which, for me, just adds to the artistry of it - a sort of 'man at one with the sea' kind of vibe.

  11. Can you imagine if this is RELLY GERRY?
    GERRY - my BROTHER?
    Somehow he thought that CONSTARS and STARST was so much more important than " FAMILY".
    I'm not talking MOB " family" that has HTMN and COMSTUL and COMIA with PIA.
    I am talking about REAL family that gives a shit about his existence and not some WERPRIC hood from WASHINGTON or STLECA- TZINGST.
    And if MP in MPARENT with MPLEO is with him, maybe I should have spoken up and said MARY PAT put pins in my bed at 12.
    But was he already long gone by then because truth be told, he could have easily been buggered by a priest at
    " choir school".
    So , if this is RELLYTO - RELLY- " GERIZZO " , maybe you are " APPYR" with CONNIE MACK and THE ROCCE in ROCCAT?
    If that is true, and you took THOMAS with you, I will never forgive you but I will cry for you.
    And for him.
    See you in the movies.
    Let's hope to god they change your name.

  12. For some reason this painting reminds me of Kent - I grew up some of the time there during the war, traveling there by train through the countryside to Margate. I am so glad that you are keeping your father's blog online and contributing from time to time, because the ambience of his work is so Brit! Thank you Jonathan!
