Share Your Bath

'Share your bath with Mr. Turnip - it'll be fun!'. That's what the advert said, but it was 1950.
My brother gave me a bar of soap this Christmas in the shape of Mr. Turnip, who was a puppet on T.V, during my childhood and I was totally fascinated by.
Although not a collector for it's own sake, I have always been keen to show archive material which has a direct bearing on my painting. I was delighted to receive this present which had survived in it's original box, even though his face was partly missing.
I used Mr. Turnip in two paintings - 'Diamonds' and 'The Enigma of the Chinese Mask', both can be seen on my PRINTS FOR SALE pages.
