I recently met up with the leader of Surrey County Council at a special event at the embroidery gallery. We got talking and he asked me if I would paint his portrait. I pointed out that I was not a portrait painter but could put him in touch with a very good artist – He said that he wanted a very cheap, bad portrait!!!!!
As I like a challenge and as, I don't suppose, any other artist in the world has been commissioned to paint a small, bad portrait I did it for him and he offered to hang some of my pictures at County Hall.
