Some examples of when Keith’s work reached the media…
Keith’s most recent commission in the media, completed in 2012, was for the Dutch museum, Bevrijdingsmuseum Zeeland, as a tribute to the crew of the Lancaster PB667 of the 7th squadron.
The original was presented at the official opening ceremony of Keith’s annual exhibition in 2012.
The painting shows the Lancaster Mk3 in the 7th squadron Pathfinder Force livery while flying over a delta-area at sunrise.
The plane with the sign MG-Q (Queeny) crashed on March 20, 1945 on its return flight from a mission to Recklinghausen in the Ruhr district.
Above Schouwen-Duiveland the plane was struck by Flak artillery and wasn’t able to return to England. In the attempt to make an emergency landing a wing broke off and all crew members lost their lives.
In May 2005 Keith’s work was again chosen for the ‘Daily Mail’ official 60th Anniversary VE/VJ Day paintings and produced a collection of three Wedgewood plates depicting a Spitfire, Hurricane and Lancaster.
The Daily Mail commissioned a limited edition print to raise funds for the Thames Embankment, ‘Battle of Britain Memorial’.
In 2000, Keith was commissioned by the ‘Daily Mail’ to produce a painting of a Spitfire, ‘Tribute To The Few’, which they reproduced as a limited edition print in order to raise money for the ‘Battle of Britain Memorial’ to be built on the Thames Embankment, London.
All 2000 copies of the print sold out within twenty hours…raising £20,000 for the fund.
In 2000, Keith’s painting, ‘Any Gum Chum’ was used as the book cover to a children’s novel.
Story of Homer the dog who flew five combat missions in 1945 with the 358th Bomb Squadron, alongside Capt Lawrence Poole and his crew, and was awarded the Air Medal.
