This is for my friend 'Blob' (Colin Garratt) who I have just reconnected with after many years.
He lives in Kingsbridge in Devon and grows his own vegetables.
It is a document noting the historic individuals of his town and I have
included him in the list.
Ha haa. All fun. No idea what he will make of it, no idea if he even knows
of the illustrious Poet, Composer, Nuclear Weapons Engineer or the
athletes historically connected with his town.
I did a second picture for 'Blob' tonight, posted below.
This is all about him. The pic documenting his village is one thing but
my favourite thing is to paint for the individual and this is all stuff
he will relate to.
This is Blob in his yellow mini, on the A40, morning rush hour.
Stuck in traffic, eating his cornflakes, the peg that every Mini driver had
to clamp the choke. His band The Psyco Lemmings, the Casio calculators
he repaired for a living, the nod to John, a great friend who died far too young.
I did it again...posted unfinished stuff. I gave myself a good slap...
These are .... the actual finished pictures for 'Blob' ( AKA Colin Garratt ).
A little historic giggle about Kingsbridge Devon, including him in a list of
notable residents and also a totally personal picture depicting moments
in his life that are now 40 years old....ha haa...he will totally get them.
