Tantalisingly this lovely image, of a young John Page steering¬†Eileen¬†and sent by former owner Judy Baker, contains an image of the Water Can she painted for Eileen in the late 1960’s.

The side of the Can’s coming together with details being added to leaves etc. This really is the fun stage, with each addition adding to the richness of the overall design.
