Prize exhibits! These were a prize, sort of, for getting the right answer to a tweeted question about identifying a corner of our part of London. So being an anorak about NW5 and around for once paid a dividend.
The prize - four wonderful postcard sized prints of the handiwork of 'The Secret Artist', who has taken to painting some of the stand-out buildings in and around NW5. These are all obvious landmarks - but she also paints the terraced houses, the street furniture, all that makes our area our area.
There's lot's more by her on display at 'Two Doors Down', the new gourmet coffee shop which is - yes, you've got it - two doors down from Quinn's at the bottom of Kentish Town Road. They have met the artist but tell me that, just like the rest of us, they don't know who she is. (And even if I did, I wouldn't tell you, because ... it's a secret!)
Here's a nice Kentishtowner write-up on our Secret Artist with more of her work ...
