I've seen your son Jim twice this week--Jim's director at the Clinton Residence, where my brother Robert lived for many years--and, lucky me, he told me about the wonders of your retirement: the marathons, and the painting.
The paintings are sublime! I have looked at them much too quickly, and wish I had the real things nearer to hand--love, especially, the textures, the way light plays on rock and wood -- and your feeling for the mysteries and beauty of nature...
Also: the playfulness of your constructions (J. Cornell-like?)...
I am saving the film,b ut hope to watch that, and give myself more time with your paintings soon.
Hi Brian, good to know you're still painting & running. I hope you & Sue are both keeping well. I am very proud to be the owner of one of your paintings, it is very special to me. Take care, & keep up the good work. Love to you both.
Looking at your paintings of Portland and the Isle of Purbeck really took me back to a very hot day in September last year when I and 4 friends walked 19 miles of the coast path from Lulworth to Swanage. Really very evocative paintings.
Thank you for your kind card and the privilege of exhibiting three of my paintings in the first T & C members show at Delapre.
I understand I may be eligible to apply for associate membership.
If this is my opportunity can you advise me how I can go about this please?
Kind regards to you and Sue,
