A true artist Even

A true artist Even though Churchill considered these paintings ‘my daubs’, he was very serious and studious about his work. I came to the conclusion that for him, this was a passion above all others and a way of escape from his busy life, and a means of relaxation that no other hobby could offer. He would be absorbed while painting, time would pass quickly and his mind was focused only on his subject. Despite his love of good food and wine, he even had to be badgered and coaxed from his easel to go to lunch or dinner. A true artist… Paul Rafferty’s book Winston Churchill: Painting on the French Riviera, published by Unicorn is available from Amazon and all good book shops. The author is hoping to produce a documentary of the project and has plans to produce a companion book of Churchills paintings of Great Britain, the Stately Homes and landscape he so loved.
