14" x 10" (36 x 25cm) / Acrylic on gessoed panel / Exhibited RA / Private Collection
To save you turning your computer upside down, the copy on the notice boards reads: ‘This site has been acquired from British Railways for municipal housing it will be developed by Westminster City Council by arrangement with the Greater London Council.’ The date would have been circa 1970. The painting was exhibited at the RA in 1975 and sold into private collection. The image stayed with me and I’ve since painted other pictures on this theme. The precise location of the now demolished building is difficult to pinpoint because the site is now Marylebone Station in London.

GUARANTEED TO LAST 1000 YEARS
I live by the rule, when you’re painting you’re not only making art, you’re making furniture. I use the finest light-fast oil, acrylic and watercolour paints, and work on hardboard. If you don’t damage, burn or submerge the paintings, they should last 1000 years. If they don’t, well, get back to me.
