The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way. Some see Nature all ridicule and deformity, and some scarce see Nature at all. But to the eyes of the man of imagination, Nature is Imagination... Continue reading

Cathedral"Today painters do not have to go to a subject matter outside of themselves. Most modern painters work from a different source. They work from within."

Having always vowed that since the incident in Nairobi I would have keep a discreet distance but the opportunity to question him on the connection between the ancient artifacts and this Gunter fellow seemed fortuitous.

Dear Duke, I am staying at Sinclair St. John’s house at the moment while I investigate the issue of my estate.

Dear Marmaduke, Having returned home, I found my house boarded up with a huge ruddy great ‘SOLD’ sign outside. I was greeted by ‘Flinch’ the gardener who told me that a rather athletic man with a big ginger beard, had taken over the estate on some sort of compulsory purchase... Continue reading
