I can resist anything except temptation.  So this is the Barbara Jones picture which comes up on the BBC Your Paintings site.

I wish it were my painting.  But in fact it belongs to Exhall Grange Community College and Special School in the Midlands.

I could quite easily go off on an entire digression about work of this calibre and vintage in schools, but for once I don’t have to.  All I need to do is point you at the Decorated School website and set you off.  Although I haven’t had a chance to explore it fully myself yet, so if you find any  particular gems, do let me know.

A normal service will finally, I hope, return next week; it’s been a bit of a sanitorium here at Crownfolio towers these last few days, so apologies for the absence.
