CALLEN [The Voice]
The media today so easily use words such as Lengendary...Hero...Expert etc etc they are used so often it devalues their meaning. Tommy Gainsborough who had close association with places like Sudbury Ipswich london was one of a kind because of his artistic skills..his sensitivity and feeling for the environment he grew from. His love of the Suffolk/Essex countryside and wanting to share that with the world. you only have to study his paintings to see his depth of feeling. He promoted this area in his work in such a beautiful way and for that he should always be remembered. Even his correspondance should be studied for he was quite a character when it came to the ladies. CALLEN [The Voice]
