I was chatting with my carer/helper Zlati today, about Bulgaria and how pretty the countryside is there compared with London. I explained to her I am from Devon and Cornwall orginally and that there are beautiful beaches and countryside there and I showed her some pictures. I was explaining that part of my family were fisherman for centuries, and googled a pic of a trawler to show her the type of boat he worked on.
I found this beautiful oil painting by John Russell Chancellor, a well known maritime artist, and could not believe it when I read the description. This is a painting of Uncle Frank's actual boat, called Souvenir.
I really want that painting as we have so few family photographs of his trawler. I am looking into making an offer to the owner, or at least finding out if prints of it are available.
