Self Portrait as Postman

Going through some early work I found this painting, painted in 1950. During my summer holidays while at Camberwell I got regular work as postman. The work was well paid and I was proud of it, though the uniform is sadly artistic licence, nothing so grand for me! Materials were costly so I frequently painted on the backs of paintings. Two for the price of one!

Self Portrait as Postman, oil on panel, size 530mm x 375mm - £450.
