Wedding present for Kate & John, 13th August 2022

Frank’s Cafe in Peckham, before the pandemic. I loved this bar at first sight, with its bustling, youthful crowds and its expansive views over the City. The painting was exhibited whilst some Covid restrictions remained in place, and attracted a few wistful comments for its atmosphere.

My cousin’s daughter Kate admired this painting when she visited me a few months before she got married, so it became her wedding present.
