Cool Eric Thake

Me again with artist portraits. Love this image by Sarah Chinnery of Eric Thake at the beach wearing striped socks.

There is something about people looking in windows. This is the best.

Here is Eric in a beautiful self portrait from the 1970s. Those socks twenty years later. The bird book lovingly at his side.

He loved birds.

  1. There are two significant Eric Thake paintings coming up for sale next month at Charles Nodrum Gallery in Richmond. One is the important late painting ‘Eight Hour Day’, the other a small gouache entitled ‘backstage’ – one I’ve never sighted before.
