Peter van Gelder
When he’s not running Westminster Forums on Government policy, my great Canadian friend Peter plays guitar and piano. Sadly his singing is worse than mine!
We’ve known each other since our BBC training course; then he was the weird voice of Skelly on the telly on Wacaday as well as head of saying No at TVam!
I surprised him with this portrait – “come and see what I’ve got for you” I said leading him to the art studio. And then a little treat – it was finished when our mate Rolf added his touches to Peter’s chin and cheek and we signed it together!
