Painting As a Pastime (Hardcover)
Winston Churchill took up painting at age forty. It remained his passion for the rest of his life. Painting brought him diversion, solace, and peace in retirement. And he was a good painter!!! This essay is a very inspirational read!— Carolyn
The perfect antidote to his 'Black Dog', a depression that blighted his working life, Churchill took to painting with gusto. Picking up a paintbrush for the first time at the age of forty, Winston Churchill found in painting a passion that was to remain his constant companion. This glorious essay exudes his compulsion for a hobby that allowed him peace during his dark days, and richly rewarded a nation with a treasure trove of work.
