Invites are currently winging their way around the country for quite possibly the party of the year, here on the Costa Blanca in Spain.

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth's
82nd birthday party no less!

As mentioned in previous blog entries, I was commissioned to paint a picture representing a modern, forward looking Britain with an emphasis on music and multiculturalism. I created a surrealistic scene of different ethnic groups coming under the umbrella (quite literally in this case) of British nationality. All in celebration of diversity and acceptance within todays society.


With an obvious play on words, the umbrellas seem to be raining down on the people and the levitating musical instruments. In this case of course, the 'reigning' relates to the reign of Queen Elizabeth.

The painting will be on show on the evening of the party and I shall be in attendance. I look forward to meeting anyone interested in knowing more.
