Christmas Present

I recently ended up buying my own Christmas present which doesn’t seem quite right but if you want to be sure you get what your after then it’s the only way.
This time it was the original artwork for the cover of the 1982 edition of ‘The Chequer Board’ by Nevil Shute painted by George Sharp. We think George painted 22 of the 23 Shute titles apart from ‘A Town Like Alice’ which may only of had a TV tie-in cover but if you know better please let me know especially those in Australia.
I have several pieces of original artwork mostly around the 12″ by 15″ size but I’ll let you guess what size my latest piece is? To find the answer just click on the picture below.
