I was recently humbled when I met two French heroes from WWII who live near me.
They were arrested as ‘terrorists’ by the Nazis during the Occupation and sent to Belsen and Dachau where they witnessed the most appauling atrocities ever committed. But they survived and returned to France after the war. They were both awarded the Legion d’honneur which I’ve included with each portrait. They are in their eighties and nineties now, but both in good health. Two panels painted from photographs. 50 x 70 kms each.

"I have been passionate about creating original art all my life, and I believe that it's important to offer tasteful and professionally created paintings and drawings at prices that are affordable to both established collectors as well as those who simply want to have a distinctive and original work of art on their walls." My paintings and drawings are held by collectors in England, America, Canada, France, Australia and South Africa." Ray Johnstone
