I have mentioned before of my appreciation of Art and certain Artists in particular.
I would like to share this story of an Artist that I am proud to know personally, who is not only a Friend of mine, but a fellow Vietnam Veteran, from those years long ago when our lives were turned upside down.
John Prowse lives in the same beautiful city as I do here in Mildura, he has been painting for many years now, and I can safely say I have seen most of his work in some stage of production.
John, or as he is commonly known as Prowsie, recently had his first exhibition, an exhibition which I was not only proud to attend in support, but also because John had deemed a portrait of myself, worthy of inclusion in his exhibition.
John had taken this picture many months back, and I am proud to present to you this portrait with myself and Prowsie at the opening of his exhibition.
John is well known in the Artistic world, and many of his paintings grace the walls of overseas collectors.
A good mate and fellow Viet Vet, who I am proud to acknowledge as a great Artist.
