Sir Peter Blake Mural masterpiece7936

The Peter Blake painting I'm talking about does not seem to be reproduced at all anywhere on line. It was an oil painting he did of them in 1980's, Phil on the left in profile (ie the right side of his face staring ahead across Don and Don was looking straight ahead full face, but his face was rather too fat, unkindly so. Which is why he refused it I would guess.

Couldn't find the quiz?

Peter was friendly with Don and would invite him to dinner a lot when he was in London, he gave Don quiet a few paintings, as you may well know Don use to paint a lot, just like his Dad did. Also Don was godfather to Peter's daughter Rosie.

@Judyc13 I remembered the picture because of the green cardigans that – in my view – are rather hideous. However, the boys look very handsome as always. Beauty can't be blemished, right?

@Kathyc Many thanks for the further information on Peter Blake and his connection to the Everly Brothers, especially to Don. Really interesting and much appreciated.

@Kathyc No, had never heard that Don painted. Do we know what, what media, and are any saved for posterity?

@7bexbex7 Really? Wonder what prompted that. I did wonder about the chicken painting visible behind Margaret. What fun!
