As well as many other things, grandfather Williamson was a painter.
We called this "The old dutch lady"
It graced the wall at the bottom of the stairs in the family home in Belfast.
Grandfather was Scottish, and the story goes that he trained at the Art College in Glasgow.
As my brother would say, "we have no definitive evidence for this!"
But I persuaded the Potter to go up to Glasgow once, to search for a clue.
We went to the Macintosh designed building and saw other similar paintings on the walls of one room.
Grandfather would have gone to the college long before this was built,
but to see the paintings so similar hinted at "definitive evidence".
Whatever the truth is, it went a long way towards my appreciation of art.
Now it hangs in the back room where I write these posts....still inspiring me.
