One of my favourites is my portrait of my Uncle Les in the sun..
Uncle Les asleep in the sun - Les was my Auntie Rhoda’s husband. On Sundays in the summer they would often take me out in the car for a picnic. Les liked to drive to the nearby Brecon Beacons. There we would have sweet tea, ham sandwiches and cream cakes laid out on a cloth. Afterwards Les would invariably fall asleep in the sun. Rhoda would worry about him being burnt and would attempt to cover him with the cloth. It was a miracle she never suffocated him. I always remember an occasion at their home when she once woke him up because he hadn’t taken his sleeping tablet.
