Hitting The Headlines

 From the burning down of the Crystal Palace in 1936 to the present day pandemic, I have used evocative newspaper headlines in my current painting 'Eggheads' to denote each generation.

My painting about brothers, starting with my father and his half brother, shows four generations of our family through the male line. I wanted something to denote the passage of time and the headlines seemed an immediate way of doing it. Luckily I had collected reproductions of old newspapers which I recently rediscovered in our loft.

Hopefully you will be able to see this painting in progress on my new improved website, soon.
