Are you still there, Richard Wood?


Richard wood wrote this message back in 1979 and placed it with the stamped, addressed postcard in an envelope on the back of his watercolour entitled Clapdale. Clapdale is a small dale in the Yorkshire Dales (a dale is the old Nordic/Germanic word for a valley). This is Clapdale:


Richard Wood however lived in Holmbrook, a village in the same area of Cumbria. I say “lived” because I can find no record of him living there now and I fear that if I sent the postcard in the hope that he was still around I would never see it again and I would like to keep it with the painting. I think, sadly, I may be 35 years too late for some more information. The painting itself is a rather beautiful view from a window:
