'Writers of the East Dean', for Reading the Forest, Cinderford, 2018.

reading the forest mural in cinderford

Reading the Forest's mission is to promote Forest literature, so they commissioned this mural of Cinderford and Brierly writers - Leonard Clark, Harry Beddington and Winifred Foley. The mural includes an illustration and a quote from each.

Reading the Forest organised an opening with recordings of the authors reciting their work with tea and cake on bone china. Along came 3 generations of Foleys. I knew a lot of relatives of the authors lived roundabout, but meeting and seeing 3 generations of Foleys in front of Winifred is a total treat for a mural painter.

Harry and Rob Beddington.
