Would you like to buy an original Reg Varney painting? (1)

River scene with bridge, with two figures on a path, a red brick wall and two cattle grazing. Oil on canvas, framed, signed by the artist.   490mm W x 400mm H (approx.)

From today, you have the extremely rare opportunity of owning an original painting by Reg Varney and supporting a wonderful local charity. 

The star of The Rag Trade and On the Buses was a talented artist as well as a successful actor and gifted musician.  In his autobiography he reveals that his dream as a boy was to go to art school, but he failed the maths test.  The above sketch of two dogs was done by Reg at the age of 13. 

As part of Fairlynch Museum’s exhibition ‘Our Little Clown’ his paintings are being offered for sale by his family to raise money for The Children’s Hospice South West.

To buy a painting, choose one you like. Make a note of its number. The one featured here is Number 1.  Seven paintings are being sold and the best way to see them is to visit Fairlynch Museum where they are all on display.
