SmallBridge Hall:- Henry Liam Ward, notable artist visits Smallbridge
Mystery "Mick" at Smallbridge
Mick at Smallbridge
A few years ago Mick was doing some painting
and decorating at a place called Smallbridge Hall in Bures. There was
a lot of work to be done and the then owner, an Australian called Greg,
had quite a team of people working for him. He had a guest staying with
himself and his wife; I think her name was Libby; the guest was an artist.
His first name was Henry.
Why am I telling you this story?..............in the possibly vain hope that maybe one day someone will look at my blog who knows Greg (no surname) or Henry (no surname) and would be able to put me in touch with them. I would so love to see a picture of the painting....I don't even know what the title was.........to have a photograph of it would mean the world to me. I've spent many hours searching the Internet for some clue but with so little information it has proved a fruitless task. It's a very special thought for me that somewhere in the world someone has a painting of my Mick hanging on their wall.
