Photograph rekindled memories of painting 14 years ago

I WAS surprised to see the illustration of the Seven Sisters in the Herald recently.

In 1998 I was at the art college which used to be in St Annes Road and I painted the same view as the one shown.

I couldn’t believe it as it was almost identical and I have it on my walls. The colours were the same, but of course with the erosion it was slightly different.

I have not painted since then for personal reasons but have signed up for an art course on January 23 to see if I can still do it.

Thank you for printing the picture – it really was a lovely surprise.
