Pretty as a picture

Sometime last year we had a visit from Orlando Clairmont who is making a film on his father Phil. The project was put to one side while Orlando and his partner went overseas, but now an email tells us he is back and ready to start again. This news sent us scurrying to our files, as we had promised to look up any photos or other information we had. There we found this image of one of Phil’s painting taken in his studio. It is of his daughter Melissa who now lives in Melbourne. We have a special affection for it as we knew Melissa as a child and had borrowed it for a few months back in the late 1970s. Unfortunately Alan Maddox slashed the painting in half. We don’t know what became of it.
