Print Title - The Cleaner's Magic Art
This piece comes from a chance meeting Bob had in Aylesbury
Bus Station with a lady who was taking an early morning bus to Princes
Risborough. It transpired that she did cleaning work hence the title. The work
seeks to celebrate people's stoicism and the beauty of everyday life.
