War Artists in Afghanistan - BEYOND THE WIRE :
The book features the work of four war artists in Afghanistan: Douglas Farthing, a former sergeant in the British paratroopers; and Michael Fay, soldier-turned-combat artist for the United States Marine Corps; Arabella Dorman, internationally recognised portrait painter and war artist; and Matthew Cook, trained illustrator, former Times war artist and Reservist Army solider. Each artist's work is accompanied by their own, first-hand account of war in Afghanistan.
National Army Museum:
one of my best ever paintings can now be purchased as a fine art print at the National Army Museum in London, you can buy it on line from the NAM's web site. I'm so chuffed 'The Fourth Man' depicts 3 soldiers patrolling the narrow medieval streets of Kabul looking from my perspective (fourth man).
2 PARA was the first British Battalion to enter Kabul and help create a safer environment in order to allow normality to grow.
