john King, commission.

At last I am able show you the commission that I have been working on.

Commissioned by the people who bought my painting of St Michael's Hill, Bristol. I always enjoy visiting them. 

This little tug boat, called the "John King" 
has seen some action in it's time. 
It was one of the boats that went across to Dunkirk 
in the war, and it also 
towed the S.S. Great Britain back into the docks in Bristol.
I really love this painting, and think it is a really cheerful subject.
