Hastings College Stole My Deckchair - 29cm x 39cm - Acrylic on Canvas
I was always going to call this painting "Hastings College Stole My Deckchair". On finishing it I worried that the title might be libelous but good sense (?) prevailed and I kept the title. I used to have a deckchair which I used as a model in many of my paintings, often with friends or family sitting in it. Foolishly I lent it to my son who wanted it for an installation which was part of his 'A' Level Graphic Design Course final assessment. Needless to say when I went to the college to collect his art works after the exams were over, the deckchair had gone. I blamed the college hence the title.
