Stanley Spencer

Finally got to the Stanley Spencer Gallery in Cookham. I love his mixture of humour, observation and biblical reference. Have been meaning to go for eons, but being local it is easy to put it off.

My favourite painting is St Frnacis and the birds, though my son says his head is like a jelly bean (and he has a point):

francisIt reminds me of the traditional greeting for magpies “Good morning Mr Magpie, how are your wife and family?”

As always, a family trip was not without incident. Turns out it was Cookham’s Christmas Fayre and everywhere was heaving with no parking. But hey ho, we did it.
