Remembering Bill Mitchell 1951 – 2017

14 Apr

Our Dear friend and neighbour Bill Mitchell died on this day last year and we have been remembering him today in various special ways. Firstly, here is my Welly Dog, left to me by Bill, seen here with Tulips.

Welly Dog with Tulips

Bill was an artist as well as a theatre director and painted a particular area in West Penwith most weeks. Each of his friends was invited after his death to choose a painting which was a very lovely thing. Today, many of his friends came down to Botallack where the paintings were made and we walked all around in Bill’s footsteps, following his paintings through the landscape, all the while sharing memories of this lovely man.

      Yes, we are very lucky to have two of his beautiful paintings as well as Welly Dog and memories. A year already- that doesn’t seem real. 🙂
