I'm excited to share with you my latest painting: 'Blenheim over RAF Wyton'.
Only 50 limited edition signed prints will be printed and for every print sold, £5 will be donated to the Royal British Legion.
The story behind the painting:
In 1939, the Bristol Blenheim bomber N6125, piloted by Flying Officer McPherson from 139 Squadron RAF, took off from RAF Wyton, achieving a historic milestone as the first British aircraft to breach the German coast, following Britain's declaration of war on Germany. Sadly, McPherson later lost his life during the Battle of France in 1940.
My depiction showcases the Blenheim flying above RAF Wyton's contemporary entrance and serves as a tribute to McPherson and his crew. By juxtaposing the past and present, I intend to show the pivotal role both Flying Officer McPherson, his crew, and RAF Wyton played in the history of the Second World War.
Limited edition prints are available to purchase from my website shop:
