Mrs Larkins

"The creator of these oil paintings has had a great love of art for most of her life. As a youngerster of nine years she practiced art with her brother as he drew circles, oval and squares, all part of his drawing lessons. Then at 12, while out playing with friends, she encountered two ladies standing by their easels in a woodland clearing and painting a woodland scene. At once she became fascinated and held her breath. She decided to watch the proceedings and hid in a nearby bush - she had a perfect view as every move was noted.

The mixing of paints on the palette to get the exact colour, changing brushes to acquire the best effect as sunshine flooded on the scene making everyone quite beautiful. In the distance her friends were calling her name thinking she was lost. But that was of no importance compared to all this. She coninued watching, ignoring everything else.

By the time the paintings were finished she had resolved to take an Art course and paint similar scenes. Which is exactly what happened. 


Nowadays this lady is elderly but many paintings and drawings have been created - some have been sold, many are too precious to part with. She still continues to paint - all in all she has led a very satisfying lifestyle".
