      ' TOM SMITHSON'

Tom Smithson, another in the Arnhem Vets series. What a charactor, went to Arnhem in 44, parachuted in. Now mid to late 80's and still parachutes into Arnhem every year.

Really nice subtlties in the face and shirt here, Kev. Great capture of expression, too. Can you imagine parachuting in your 80's? Geez. what a guy! Great tribute!

Artist Reply: Thanks Jan, really look forward to your comments, know it must be OK if get a commnt from such a great artist. Sadly I can't parachute myself this year at Arnhem, have been grounded, due to epilepsy. As we term it, turned into a penguin. ' Got wings but can't fly '. Had a good run though, I'm 50, not as good as Tom mind you, but I tried.
