    I do a bit of painting now and again to relax, here are some of them, they are not as good as I wanted them to be but who cares, I do it for me.

    Great paintings, Captain Kong. I'd love to be able to draw or paint, but I can only manage matchstick men and animals. Mine are not quite to Lowry's standard though.

    Thank you gentlemen for those kind comments.
    Painting is nothing to do with doing a good one.
    I find that it is relaxing instead of watching rubbish on TV or getting drunk again and again.
    It is as good as you want it to be. Look at some of the so called great artists, some of them are complete rubbish but some people think they are good, and buy them.
    I painted a ship on the QE2 last April and an American woman offered me 50$ for it. I gave it to her for free, If I had sold it, it would be worth 50$, but because I gave it, it is priceless.
    Just do it and enjoy it.

    One of your paintings is of the "Moshulu".
    I was aboard her in Philadelphia in the 1980's when she was being used as a restaurant. She went on fire and was a total loss I believe.

    She was also used in the second part of "The Godfather" I think as the ship that carried young Vito to the USA.

    Like me she was built on the Clyde.
