Dreams of peace and solitude

Forever springtime

Today's artist had one of the most stressful jobs of the Twentieth Century.

His art typically shows "timeless" images, often with a path or river as an element of continuity in it.

The trees appear embattled, almost tortured. But in spite of that the soldier on.

The artist did not paint this art to impress anybody. He painted because the process absorbed him and gave him peace. It reminded him of what was important.

Any guesses as to the artist?



If you guessed Sir Winston "Glow-worm" Churchill you would have been right.

  1. That's an interesting way to look at Churchill's art. Not something I would have picked up on, heathen that I am.

  2. Do you know who the guy is that Churchill's cigar is pointed at?
