I've watched a brilliant film with Albert Finney as Churchill.

Such a great man represented life beautifully. God Bless Winston Churchill.


Churchill’s “A Study of Boats.” One of his most famous paintings. It was painted in 1933.


Many people don’t know that in between saving Britain from invasion from the Nazi’s and keeping the Cuban Cigar Industry afloat, Winston Churchill was an avid painter, and a pretty good one at that.

He was a brilliant man and a great war time leader. But sadly, he was very out of touch with the majority of people not only in his own country but people of the world.

He was living proof of Hamilton's (alleged) adage: well adjusted to make the same mistake more than twice, yet never nervous about it.

Sir Winston Churchill was the best thing that ever happened to Britain down to this very day. Blair, Cameron not even a patch on Winston

Why would he paint under Charles Morin pseudonym?

That man was emotionally strong - I always remember his two jetted fingers 'V' which indicate victory.
In fact, whenever I encounter a picture of him I become emotionally strong
