Some paintings (212 KB)

"Pat - Was a good sportsman at school.  Studied art at the Chelsea Art school.  Worked as an artist for the local printing company - Dickins.  Then helped his sister with the antiques business.  Pat's house was full of his own paintings, but he rarely sold or gave them away.  He once held an exhibition of his paintings at Watford Library.  (I went to the exhibition and took photos of a number of the paintings.)  His main hobby after painting was visiting air shows.  About 6 years ago I took him to the Farnborough Air Show.  During the Second World War he was a Concientious Objector.  The family thought this was due to his father's influence." - (jrm - January 2003)
