'The Blue Bell Inn'1998
Commission, Framed original
18" x 14" including frame and mount
The beautiful Blue Bell Inn at Tushingham in Cheshire was my local for many years. Sadly it is no longer a pub. This Batik portrait of a much-loved friend was a commission from visiting Americans, who loved it too. Parts of the old building date back to 1400 and it is reputed to have a ghost, although I never saw it.
