PHIL Darby has turned his hand to many artistic endeavours over the years, and three of them are on display here. He is holding an example of his calligraphy, on his left is his one tapestry effort that he just decided to do over the course of a “long, cold” winter while watching television, and above his head is a painting he completed this winter during the coronavirus pandemic restrictions.

IT’S only fitting that the painters Phil Darby most admires are the Old Masters, such as Leonardo da Vinci.
Because in his own way, the Portland artist is something of a Renaissance man when it comes to his own work.
