Artist Talk with John Lennard at 2 PM

This is the story of the great experience of reconnecting with an old friend.

During the 80’s, playing rock and roll in London, UK and existing on dreams, I offered to share my one room flat with Billy Duffy – a guitar player and band member that needed a place to stay. We tossed a coin to see who would sleep on the mattress or springs. In the years since, he has sold millions of records and played with all the greats in rock and roll, including his own band, The Cult. I left rock and roll in London to study jazz saxophone and paint in New York.

It was non-stop enjoyment to reconnect many years later outside Manchester and walk in the English countryside. It was also a reminder of what good times are made of. This is a series of paintings done from the sketches and memory of the wonderful day spending time with a friend.  Spring 2023.
