Ed: "hmm this is the life"

previous painting ........ next painting

This painting was a nostalgic take on playing truant from comprehensive school. My close friend Ed and I would skip school by running the gauntlet over fences and through thickets. Due to the rural location of our school, we didn't have to travel far to reach our own little paradise next to the River Taff where we'd paddle in the river and lay on our coats in the sun. The painting depicts an older friend playing himself as a teenager.
