Inspired by the art of Jack Vettriano , 68 year old pensioner Frank Spruce has entered a national competition to create a painting in the artist’s unique style. He saw the competition to seek out an painter in the style of Jack Vettriano in a newspaper
Spruce was so thrilled when he heard that Vettriano would be on the judging panel that he decided he had to enter and sent in a copy of a self-portrait.
” Nobody else will pose for me and sit still long enough so I sat in front of the mirror and painted myself,” said Mr Spruce, from Fir Grove, Paddington.
Frank has put on exhibitions in libraries across the town for the past five years and his paintings have sold well . Vettriano’s paintings include Singing Butler and Dance Me to the End of Love.
