As the commemorations of the onset of the Great War continue I thought I'd post this before August slides into September. This is a portrait of my grandfather 1814/305261Pte William Godfrey Gregory 1st/8th Battalion Notts & Derby Regt , The Sherwood Foresters, from a photograph probably taken shortly after mobilisation a hundred years ago this month.
So, no prizes for guessing the source of the latest work in progress (not very good phone snap above) although in a nod to Duchamp (whose birthday it was recently) I was thinking of calling it 'Errol Flynn descending a staircase'. Either way it'll be finished soon(ish) and up on the website and available to buy should to you feel so inclined.
I'm actually planning on tackling a few more 'mediaeval' subjects, not all of them movie inspired so if you know of someone who's nuts about knights or batty over bestiaries do me a favour and get them to check out the picture palace in the next few weeks and see what's new. I'd be particularly keen to hear from any re-enactors who might be looking for something contemporary that still reflects their interests. My contact form is here or I can be reached on facebook (and if you'd like to 'like' the page at the same time that would be very much appreciated).
Before that though, I think it's time for a belated spring clean, overhaul and redesign of the site itself, so while it will be business as usual to the outside world there will be some major changes happening behind the scenes and a new look site coming soon.
Watch, as they say, this space!
Work in progress and other stuff that happens.
