47 Phonebox Painting

Painting of a Phonebox in Gawcott, Buckinghamshire47 - Phonebox - Cathy-Read- ©2018 - Watercolour and Acrylic - 17.8x17.8cm - £154

Not hard to guess where the original for this phonebox painting is. Let’s face it, it’s big, it’s red and it tells you exactly where it is! Gawcott is emblazoned on at least 2 sides.

How can you miss a phonebox in Gawcott? I’d say you couldn’t. Yet, I’ve recently spoken to somebody who was unaware that it’s a library. She lives locally as well. I love the trend to convert them to new uses. What a lovely way to use our iconic phoneboxes in the world of mobile phones, than to create a mini library.
