Artist of the Lakes and Dales – and Pendle

September 9, 2011

Yesterday I was in Lancashire attending the funeral of an old friend, and driving from the church to the cemetery passed the studio of landscape artist Keith Melling. I’ve admired his work for many years. For decades he has painted the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales and his home turf, that beautiful area around Pendle […]
