Mike tells us: “The building is the centre of a tiny village in Hungary – I forget the name – which I did for my next door neighbour in return for a couple of jars of delicious pickles. It was her hometown. She moved away so I do not know where it is, now.”

 

“This is a very young and dynamic Thomas Clarkson. I think it isn’t a bad likeness but to be honest, it depends which picture you are using at the time. His face changes – bones and all – depending on who does him! It is a large piece, at the Secret Garden Touring site, Wisbech St Mary.”

For those not from the area, Thomas Clarkson spent his life working towards the abolition of Slavery. He and his brother John, also an abolitionist, were born in Wisbech.

“One is a portrait in acrylics of my niece who is a nurse in the Intensive Care Unit in Newcastle Royal Victoria Infirmary.

I painted it in tribute to her and all her NHS colleagues who have been helping in the fight against the coronavirus.

The other is a painting in oils of a local scene taken from a Lilian Reams b&w photo from I believe the 1920s (with kind permission of the Lilian Ream Trust).”

 

Cliff has kindly sent us some more work from his Lilian Ream work, which is a fantastic way to show you the work from this local photographer. From the Lilian Ream Trust website:

Lilian Ream was a remarkable woman who ran a number of businesses in Wisbech including the Borough Studio. She started her photographic career, at the age of 17, as an apprentice to Alfred Drysdale, a Wisbech photographer and, after working with a number of other local firms, she started her own studio in 1909.

In time she took over the photographic businesses in Wisbech and became a well-known figure in the area until her retirement, at the age of 72, in 1949. The family firm she built continued until 1971 and over this period she amassed a large collection of photographic negatives.

I’ve been painting for 6 years now. During lockdown, I’ve been busy with commissions but also painting live on Facebook every Wednesday at 11am in the hope of providing some company to people at home. I then put the videos onto YouTube. Here are some

Interesting subjects, and textures. Living locally for 11 years, Simone wanted to share her work with us although she hasn’t created in a while. We hope this inspires her to do some more.
