Longboat


I was going through some old albums yesterday and found some photos of me when I was young and we were going around the canal system on an old converted lifeboat. This was 1960's. I remember the Tipton Locks mainly because there were so many of them and you were close to the railway sheds with many steam engines going back and forth.
Anyway I thought the painting above was appropriate although our boat was nothing like as posh as that. I  have been on a longboat that was with Prince Charles (a man who I have found to be a real gentleman), forgive the name dropping but he probably does the same with me.
Today I did the majority of work on a dramatic sunset. Should finish it tomorrow.
