Our Gal: he paints real good.

He’ll kill me for that, but I wanted to link to an old friend of the family’s website.

Garry’s an artist, writer, mountaineer, and imbiber of fine wines who we’ve known for far too long. His paintings and prints are all over our house, and he recently had a big exhibition in Highgate. His style is a curious mix of the figurative and the abstract (with big black lines), and he’s a wonderful portraitist.

His most recent work is a series of portraits called The Holloway Icons, where he has painted a group of friends, neighbours and celebrities local to North London (including Arsene Wenger!).

I can’t afford to buy the paintings (well I could, but we need a new car), but I hope he gets to sell a few…
