When looking at these paintings all I could think about was my childhood school principal. I don’t know why he came to mind. Growing up in fear of him was awful. He was such a harsh man that used to go red with anger and scream at everyone for the smallest of indiscretions. One day he drove past me as I was happily wandering to school. He stopped his car and screamed at me for being messily dressed. I had my blue button up shirt un-tucked from my grey trousers and my navy blue and yellow striped tie was crooked. He told me as soon as I got to school to go to his office. He made me stand outside his office facing a red brick wall and wait there to speak to him. I remember the secretary asking me what I had done. He made me wait there for ages. He eventually called me in and said I was disrespectful and told me to wear my school uniform properly even when outside school grounds because I was representing the school no matter where I was. He was such an intimidating bastard. I hated him. I always wished bad stuff would happen to him. I Googled him and apparently he had a brain tumour and died last week.

Neville, I’m sorry if my bad wishes had anything to do with it. I was just a kid.
