DAVID GUY MEASURES 1937-2011

Painting by David Guy Measures

David Measures, a founder member of Southwell Artists, died on August 4th after a long illness. He was both a wildlife artist and a painter of almost abstract small landscapes.Most all his work was created in his beloved countryside. For years he was both an inspirational teacher in what is now Nottingham Trent University.
A few of his wildlife notebooks were published, 'Bright Wings of Summer' and 'Butterfly Season 1984', but others are to be inherited by the Natural History Museum.
He was an artist who's' work was valued both in Britain and in Europe. But, above all, those that knew him will miss his bounding enthusiasm, love of people and that fountain of ideas.
