Hello, I am Graham MacLean. I am 78 years of age and a long retired former Chartered Surveyor who has spent much of his adult life in the Far East and Canada. I am a Canadian subject and currently living in Hong Kong. I think I have visited Chandler’s Ford two or three times in twenty years but I do have Google Earth!
My interests are landscape painting, principally oils, which I still find overall the most flexible form. I also paint in ink in classical Chinese style and have exhibited locally. I have now returned to Western painting as it covers more modern themes. I enjoy badminton still, occasionally golf, and, when the opportunity arises, fly fishing.
I thought I would share some memories of my time in Chandler’s Ford over the next few posts. If anyone remembers the people or places I will mention, please do write in. I’m going to start with my memories of the war years. [Read more…] about Chandler’s Ford Memories from Hong Kong: Part 1
