Barbara Hedges was Samuel “David Watson” Petty’s grandma.
She was born in 1920 on a farm in Shropshire, studied poultry husbandry at Harper Adams Agricultural College, and went into the Women’s Royal Voluntary Service where she served at Churchill’s funeral. She had 3 children and it was only after they had flown the nest that she took up oil painting in her 60’s. She had a very distinctive style, her own take on pointillism.
This design was painted in the 1980’s when she was on a summer course in Wiltshire.
Sam was very close to his Grandmother and it is lovely to see her work alive again, she often wore silk scarves so he is sure she is pleased!
