Enough of my work for a while.
I would like to tell you about my husband since he appeared in the previous post.
There are not many photos so you will have to click on all the coloured links to see more pictures.
He was busy earlier this year helping with the restoration of The Midland Hotel, Morecambe, to its former glory.
Its an Art Deco hotel which has been restored by Urban Splash, with painted decorations by Eric Gill
These have been carefully restored by my husband.
He worked on the Ceiling Roundel at the top of the stairs laying tiny flakes of paint and retouching miniscule losses and when he had finished it looked like this
Then he had to make a painting, which was on a wall, safe before he moved the wall! (He’s done it before)
Its a relief map of Morecambe Bay with illustrations of the surrounding area.
Now its back to its original splendour and looks like this
There has been much publicity about the long awaited opening of the hotel and it was even on The Culture Show. Its hoped the Hotel will save the town from its decline.
When people hear what my husband does for a living they say ‘Oooh you must be very patient’,
He is. He gets a lot of practice. He’s lived with me for 31 years.
