This is not an opera house, but a club where local men play cards and talk politics throughout the day - and most of the night. The trompe l'oeil in the club creates a stunning backdrop to the card shuffling.
The original artwork on the walls is by Andrea Pozzo called The trompe l'oeil. Born in Trento, 30th November 1642; died in Vienna, 31st August 1709.

The Reluctant Golfer. Oil on board 20” x 16” (50.8 x 40.64 centimetres)
The suggestion for this painting comes from a statue perched behind the seats in the Guest House Inn, Union Street, Southport. (Named Best Cask Ale pub in national awards run by Star Pubs & Bars)
Painted on the backing board from a glass fronted wooden frame, the type you buy to frame large family photographs. Carefully removing the backing board and glass, (placing the glass in a safe place as this is no longer required) I covered the backboard with several coats of Gesso before starting to paint using Winsors & Newton oils.
Stranger on the shore. 9” x 11” oil on Crawford and Black canvas paper.
Idea for this painting is from a scene in the 1970’s sitcom
‘Till Death Us Do Part’ staring Warren Michael as Alf Garnett.
