Throwback Thursday: Painting as a Pastime by Winston S. Churchill

I’m linking up today with Davida @ The Chocolate Lady’s Book Review Blog for Throwback Thursday. It takes place on the Thursday before the first Saturday of every month (i.e., the Thursday before the monthly #6Degrees post). The idea is to highlight one of your previously published book reviews and then link back to Davida’s blog.

Today I’m looking back at my post on Painting as a Pastime by Winston S. Churchill. I first reviewed it on March 15, 2018.

My review begins:

I was delighted on Sunday when my son gave me Painting as a Pastime by Winston Churchill as a Mother’s Day present. I read it straight away and loved it. The cover shows Churchill’s painting of his home, Chartwell. Churchill was forty when he first started to paint at ‘a most trying time‘ in his life and art became his passion and an ‘astonishing and enriching experience‘.

The next Throwback Thursday post is scheduled for June 2, 2022.

  1. Churchill was a complicated person, Margaret, and it’s interesting to explore this side of his personality. I’ve always liked his writing style, too, and thought it was great that he took up painting as he did. I have no artistic talent, myself, but this sounds interesting!
