Inspiring Pictures for Writers – Anne McGill’s atmospheric world


I don’t know the Northern Ireland artist Anne McGill but I have a print of one of works on my living room wall and every time I look at it I think of my father, not as I knew him, but the father in the photographs taken before I was born. There’s a 1950s feel to the world she paints and a hard-to-pin-down atmosphere of longing and regret . This picture is called Spring Will Come Again…now that’s a title that prompts a lot of questions, just as a good title should.

      Glad you like it – my print is also of a couple on a bench but it has a different mood.
