This painting shows The Woolen Mill and Maesycwmmer House on the Maesycwmmer side of the Rhymney river - The river flows on the left of the painting. It was painted in 1983 though I recall not being happy with the result so I removed the canvas from its stretchers, rolled it up and it has been left in the attic since then. That is, until I decided to restretch it and give it a repaint in May 2018 and it now looks like a new painting - worth the time and effort.

What prompted me to add it here was a phone call from an elderly lady. She mentioned her husband was born at the wool mill and asked if I had any history of the place. I can recall looking for info' but at the time it came to nothing.

Another chap phoned me from London and we had a good chat about the painting. He mentioned that he and members of his family were evacuated during the war to Cefn-Hengoed - 2 minutes drive from here. His 83 year old sister as a 14 year old was in service in Maesycwmmer House shown in the painting, so he was pleased to find this painting.

As with all my paintings, I make every effort to paint the subject as it is and this painting follows this theme.

Mr Carney from London writes :
