Wash Day Blues

Main Banner

‘Wash Day Blues’ was a surprise commission for Dave’s 50th birthday. Kay, his wife, wanted the painting to include her husband as a young boy and also to include reference to his favourite Manchester City player. In the photographs provided for James to use as reference were his two younger brothers and so the painting finally included the 3 boys and Colin Bell’s football shirt hanging on the line.

The painting was so popular we had to publish limited edition prints for his brothers!
