This is my latest painting. This window only exists in this painting. I painted it without reference to anything, apart from my memory. When I was a boy all outside paintwork was painted mainly either green or cream.

My first ever job was as an apprentice painter and decorator. I hated it, and left after a few months to join the Merchant Navy.
Ironically, in the Merchant Navy I spent most of my time painting the ships. Fortunately none of the ships I served on were green or cream!
