|Self Portrait, Reginald Fred Coles, 1941|
He made himself a drawing board, which of course we still have, and my sisters and I have all scored into and painted on through numerous school or otherwise projects. Im sure he would have been thrilled to see it so loved and used. While I was at home for christmas, I set myself up with a few projects and again added to the drawing boards war wounds. I got a little more attached to it this time, but seeing as I couldn't drag it back to the states with me under the guise of hand luggage, I convinced my husband to make me my own!
