Portrait of an Optimist a painting by Andrew Hewkin
Artist Andrew Hewkin and I have been friends ever since he came to the stage door of the West End theatre where I was appearing in Clifford Odettes The Country girl. He was delivering a gift of one of his beautiful paintings and I was understandably touched. From that moment on he and I became firm friends and much later on worked on an idea I had for a book of my poems, his images “Songs to Bedroom Walls”
