SIGNS (INNS & HOUSES) GALLERY


'The Merry Drinker'

This is my copy of a portrait of that name by Frans Hals (the Dutch portrait and genre painter). I copied two masters for a pub-restaurant in Devon called The Cavalier.

'The Fox Inn', Hallaton

In my days as a full-time pub sign painter I completed hundreds of signs. Some have been redesigned, some pubs have changed their names, but The Fox at Hallaton has been repainted by me three times during the past ten years each time to the same design but depicted in different season of the year The final repainting won such acclaim that it was decided not to cover the picture with the pub's name. I was very flattered!

'The Black Swan'

This was commissioned for a pub in Seattle, USA,
(where I hope it still hangs!)

'Springfield House'

When all that is requested for a house sign is wording, this can be done of course, but I usually can't resist the temptation to put in just a little wildlife, in this instance a Red Admiral butterfly.

and here is another to demonstrate my passion for nature's art.
