In this book every painting has a story which is recounted in this publication. Jack Russell's transition from the Cricketer who painted to the Painter who once played cricket. Painting the Duke of Edinburgh in Buckingham Palace, spending three hilarious days on the Isle of Man with Norman Wisdom, the sitting of guitar legend Eric Clapton; the encounter with his hero of comedy Eric Sykes; the emotion when painting at the Cenotaph on Whitehall. Legal London - The Old Bailey and Inns of Court. The Canal scenes - Jack's ancestors were Bargees on the canals in the 19th century, and of course the 2005 winning Ashes Series - where he was one of the coaching specialists. Plus much more - including painting the World Championship Snooker at The Crucible and his visit to Mumbai with the Comic Relief Celebrity cricket team.
