    Evening all

    Evening all

    Just signed up as I know a good friend of mine (Tunneruk) was an active member here before his very sad passing.

    Was just curious to see more of his work. I'm a fellow painter from Kent and we often spoke about doing some joint project work when we both had the time.

    I was honoured to airbrush Chris' coffin today. Was a very difficult piece to paint.

    Still a bit shellshocked to be honest and just looking to reach out to friends of Chris.

    Peace
    Foz

    That’s a nice gesture.

    Would it not be quite a nice touch if everybody who went to the funeral put a sticker on the coffin ?
    I bet Chris would be laughing if he could picture the scene !

    Greetings Foz, welcome to the forum.

    I was fortunate enough to have attended the service on Monday, and it was heart warming to see so many people paying their respects to a great bloke.

    It did not feel appropriate to take pictures at the crematorium, but the job Foz did on the coffin was just wonderful - captured Chris's love of walking on the hills.

    Welcome fella.
