To view the first one click on this link to Amazon - `Where is my Father?` by L J Osborne.
Christopher Osborne grew up in Margate, Kent and worked in engineering before becoming a professional artist in 1974.
He is self-taught and his fine oil paintings display a sensitive observation of the quiet countryside, its moods, seasons and weather.
He believes that worthwhile painting is founded on acute observation and a developing craftsmanship. When the weather allows, he works on site as this develops a good feel for the subject.
For ten years he lived in East Anglia and was much influenced by the sweeping skies and open landscape. However, his love of the Downs, Weald and marshes of the south led him to East Sussex where he lives with his wife and family.
A series of limited edition prints of Sussex are available, and his work is printed on greetings cards and calendars.
He has exhibited with the Royal Institute and his paintings are in private collections in Great Britain, the USA and many other countries.
