As a principle, and despite several commssion requests to do so, Terry would never repeat the same scene so that each purchaser possessed a unique work of art. Very occasionally he believed that a scene could be reinterpreted and this is one of those rare examples.  One of his favourite paintings was an early oil painting of St Frances Passage in Lancaster.  More than 30 years later, when the area had seen significant redevelopment, he returned late in his life to capture the scene in watercolour producing another painting he considered one of his finest.   (An early girlfriend had been called Frances so the name always had memories as well.)

The painting is typical of his mid-size watercolours at about 18″ across.  It is in a private collection overseas.  NFS

(I apologise for the poor standard of this photo.  I didn’t have my trusty Nikon with me and there were reflections from the glass as well.  Sorry.  I’ll try harder!)
