Norwich City FC painting

I painted Carrow Road today and had a chat with BBC Radio Norfolk and Delia Smith.

I painted the scene at Carrow Road today, before the match between Norwich City and Hull City. I had hoped to paint inside the ground during the match but that proved to be impossible. Instead I painted the area where VIPs and the players arive. One of the VIPs who came up to say hello was Delia Smith.

While I was having a short break BBC norfolk turned up. They spoke with my friend Di Cunningham of the Proud Canaries and then with me.

I didn't spot many players. The only player who made it into the picture is David Meyler (the left-most character), who is a Hull City player. He got sent off during the match, so my painting did bring good luck.
