Antony and Hazel Wood

Marlborough  –  2017

Publisher of Angel Classics and co-editor

of Slightly Foxed magazine. This was a family commission for my brother’s 80th birthday. We chose oil pastel as a faster medium than paint. The Angel book pile shows the latest, the first, the largest and best seller of his publications. His ever- present  manuscript  encroaches symbolically upon Hazel’s hand. The quarterly Slightly Foxed is shown as Hazel’s pile of four copies. On the wall behind her is a poster of the first edition.
