John Bird is a talented, and popular, local artist. Working in watercolour, oils and pastels his work sensitively depicts
My picture shows some of his character. He's a lovely man who always has a smile on his face; he was a willing victim for my camera.
As well as exhibiting and selling his work through shops he has a regular stall on Lymington's bustling Saturday market, close to - Moore Blatch Solicitors and opposite Woolworth - where his original work may be purchased. Most people I know have a piece of his work, his paintings also make wonderful gifts which are always well received.
The lines on the pictures are not faults, they are reflections from the white awnings that protect the paintings from the weather.
Edit autumn 2007
John Bird no longer lives in the area, he has retired and moved away.
