    the 1980 footage showing Phil Richards' 1980 work was filmed by Derek May, a fine painter himself, in heaven since 1992. Derek was such an anti-monarchist (and anti-lawyer by the way) that is ironic that his footage goes along EXCLUSIVE images of the Queen of Canada ! LOL ! I am sure nonetheless that Derek is way happy for excellent Phil Richards. (I LOVE the bit where Phil Richards get a free space in exchange of maintenance work ! I love the bit with the royal letter ....and the paint on it. it's so débonnaire. Bravo !
