The Water Men
It’s Flushing Art Week and this year I’ve been playing in the Water Mans Rest on the quay. It’s a place that’s seen generations of Fishermen, Ferry men and passengers take time out, smoke a pipe, wait for the next ferry or a storm to pass.
It’s a place full of character and most mornings full of the most colourful people in this small fishing village, so this year I’ve been drawing some of these wonderful people and with their kind permission added a little colour to their windows for the week.
It’s certainly caused a good pub conversation or two and with any luck helped those who passed through Flushing this week discover a little more of the community that exists here.
Big thanks to Norman and Danny for being first up, more paintings popping up in Flushing over the next few weeks, watch out for John, Bunny & Potts!
