Col Levy Potter..oils by xxaihxx Col Levy Potter..oils by xxaihxx
Painted in oils on linen canvas..What a lovely surprise! ..grateful Thanks to mintyy and deshrubber!

My painting of Col Levy whom I met again after 50 years..Australia's foremost potter. Was privileged to be shown around his studio and saw work done in porcelein that he has not shown. His work is amazing.
