-Welcome to Codi Pac.
-I, Geraint Hardy, will be travelling
-all around Wales...
-..to find some of our treasures.
-If you want a weekend away,
-you needn't travel far.
-It's all on the doorstep.
-Places to eat, places to stay,
-things to do and see.
-They're all here on Codi Pac.
-I need a few things
-for this journey. They're all here.
-I have a notebook, pamphlets,
-an orange camera...
-..a mobile phone, water, bag
-and a car.
-I don't need my passport
-because I'm staying in Wales.
-Wales may be small but there's
-plenty to do and see here.
-Over the next six programmes...
-..I'll be visiting six different
-From Wrexham to Machynlleth,
-from Beaumaris to Merthyr Tydfil.
-I'll be looking at places to stay
-and places to eat.
-I'll find out a little local
-history and try out some activities.
-From the exciting to the relaxed,
-there'll be something for everyone.
-following the programme...
-..head to the website
-or search for the Dal Ati app.
-During the industrial revolution...
-..Merthyr Tydfil was one of
-the largest towns in the world.
-People flocked to work
-in the steel works and coal fields.
-There are plenty of reasons
-to come here.
-I've come here on holiday.
-Merthyr Tydfil is just over there.
-According to the legend, Merthyr
-Tydfil is named after Saint Tydfil.
-She was the daughter
-of King Brychan of Brycheiniog.
-Some of the town's famous names...
-..include fashion designer Julien
-Macdonald, musician Joseph Parry...
-..and actor Steve Spiers from
-the series Stella and Cariad@Iaith.
-Before we find out
-more about the area...
-..I need to find the place
-I've reached Merthyr Tydfil.
-This is where I'm staying
-over the next few days.
-It's quite a place.
-Unusually, I've come in through
-the back door not the front door.
-There's a reason for that.
-If you come here to cycle...
-..you can come straight in here from
-the mountain and clean your bike...
-..pump up your tyres and fix
-your bike if something's broken.
-I'm looking forward to staying here.
-In we go.
-This house is a coal cottage
-from the 19th Century.
-You can see similar ones
-at St Fagan's museum these days.
-I'm already a happy man.
-A very modern kitchen. What's here?
-There's a nice washroom.
-Look at this big open lounge.
-Plenty of room.
-You can relax,
-there's light through the roof.
-There's a bit of Merthyr
-and coal mine history here.
-What else do we have?
-A massive TV on the wall.
-Everyone's happy with a big TV.
-Solid wood and look at the art work.
-It's a flash of colour
-to lift the room.
-I'm happy. The big question
-is where's the bedroom.
-I'm guessing it's upstairs.
-The stairs are a bit narrow.
-This is so nice.
-It's warm and cosy.
-Look how nice the beds are.
-This is special,
-a bike seat with handlebars.
-It looks similar
-to some of Picasso's work.
-The wall paper is nice.
-I'll sleep well here.
-There's one thing left.
-There are plenty of other places
-to stay in the area.
-On the banks of the Taf Fechan
-..an old church has been converted
-to a four star bed and breakfast...
-..that shares the name,
-Ty Taf Fechan.
-With striking views over the water
-and surrounding mountains.
-Just off the A470 is Nant Ddu Lodge.
-You can relax in the spa and
-swimming pool or head to the gym.
-For more information about
-accommodation head to our website.
-There are loads of different things
-to do in Merthyr.
-One thing has caught my attention.
-This is it, a bit of adventure,
-Bike Park Wales.
-Here I am, halfway up the mountain.
-As you can see,
-the view is incredible.
-Before I get on my bike,
-let's see what's here.
-To start, there's a wonderful little
-cafe where you can grab a drink.
-In the corner, there's a fire
-to warm you up if it's cold.
-There are several tracks of various
-standards so anyone can have a go.
-This poster says it all.
-The Welsh answer to Whistler which
-is one of the best places...
-..in the world for mountain biking.
-This is one of the area's main
-thousands of bikers every year.
-The park was made
-by bikers for bikers.
-I've got a bike, helmet and my pads.
-These are all the courses.
-Green is the easiest
-and black the hardest.
-I'll start somewhere in the middle
-with yellow. Off I go.
-This is where everyone plops their
-bikes on the back of the bus.
-That shows you how high up
-the mountain we're going today.
-I can hear a helicopter in the
-I hope nobody's hurt too badly.
-I don't want to be heading home in a
-I want to use my bike.
-Let's go for it!
-the top of the mountain.
-This is where everyone starts.
-There are a few options.
-We have Wibbly Wobbly, 50 Shades Of
-Black and my favourite, Popty Ping.
-The only option I have now
-is Melted Welly.
-See you at the bottom.
-There are so many nasty turns.
-Here we go, a straight part. Argh!
-Around this corner, pump the legs.
-This is fast.
-Here's what they call an S-bend.
-Here's a little skid.
-Whoop! In to the forest.
-One thing I'm not going to do
-is sit down.
-It's not safe.
-It's so fast, I'm not sure if it
-comes across that way at home.
-Seriously, it feels like
-I'm thundering down this course.
-Wow, a corner.
-This is incredibly narrow.
-It's wet and slippery too.
-There's nothing better.
-I can see Merthyr to my left.
-What a view!
-Here we are.
-We've reached the bottom.
-What a journey.
-That was wonderful.
-It was worth doing.
-If you feel adventurous after
-..you can venture to the Rock UK
-Summit Centre in Trelewis.
-It has 180 indoor climbing routes.
-Some of them are up to
-18m in height.
-It's the perfect place
-to grab more adrenaline.
-One, two, three!
-I had so much fun cycling,
-I'd love to go into this water now.
-First, I need to meet someone who
-knows more about the town's history.
-As a post-industrial town, Merthyr
-is full of interesting history.
-I went to meet Lis Mclean
-at a special location.
-is the jewel in the crown.
-This is the main thing
-that attracts people.
-There are also things that
-are associated with the castle.
-The iron works and such things.
-Joseph Parry's cottage too.
-There's a lot of interest
-in history in Merthyr.
-The jewel in the crown,
-what a wonderful description.
-Who used to live here?
-The Crawshays built the place.
-They owned the iron works.
-They also felt that they
-owned all the people too.
-As a local person,
-despite the Crawshays living here...
-..and controlling the populace
-for a time.
-Is there a bad feeling about
-the building or do you enjoy it?
-It's very interesting.
-As it happens, everyone feels
-the park and castle belongs to them.
-It's a part of everyone's childhood.
-It's in the middle
-of Merthyr Tydfil.
-A lot of people visit the place.
-The whole history of Merthyr
-is in this building.
-A little bit of everything.
-You've got the history of local
-brass bands and the Romans.
-The main story
-is the Crawshay family.
-They ran all the steel and iron
-works in Merthyr Tydfil.
-Think about it, all these things...
-..all this steel was made here
-and exported across the world.
-After the mountain biking
-and history lesson...
-..I returned to the house to relax.
-I'll be back after the break.
-I'll be heading for a trip
-on a steam train...
-..and get to meet
-the local Welsh learners.
-After a wonderful night here
-at Dan Y Coetir cottage.
-I'm doing something different today.
-I love the car, but today
-I'm travelling in a different way.
-It really is a different way
-There's nothing better
-than an old steam train.
-I'm going to travel around the
-mountains to see the views on offer.
-Here we are, it's the reservoir.
-Isn't it wonderful?
-The Taf Fechan reservoir
-is near Pontsticill...
-..in the Brecon Beacons National
-The damn was built in 1927.
-It holds over 300 million
-gallons of water.
-The reservoir is popular for boats,
-fishing and hikers.
-You can see now why 70,000 people
-come on this steam train annually.
-What a beautiful view.
-This train line runs from Pant...
-..three miles north of Merthyr
-It's on the original route
-of the Merthyr-Brecon railway.
-It closed in 1963.
-Now that the train has stopped,
-we can relax and walk around.
-The train is going
-to move forward...
-..so it can go back around
-the carriages and pull us home.
-Here it goes! Choo choo!
-In addition to the wonderful
-views on the way...
-..there's a chance to relax before
-moving on to the next location.
-This place, Canolfan Soar...
-..is one of the places to come
-in Merthyr if you're learning Welsh.
-Gari, it's a pleasure to meet you.
-Thanks for letting us come to
-Tell us a little of your history.
-Tell us a little of your history.
-I'm from Pontypridd originally.
-We've been living in this area for
-over 20 years now.
-I just feel like
-someone from Merthyr.
-You didn't speak Welsh
-when you were growing up.
-You've learned Welsh.
-Why learn Welsh in the first place?
-I wanted my kids to go
-to the Welsh medium school.
-The children went
-to Ysgol Rhydfelen.
-And then I realised that it was just
-me who couldn't speak Welsh.
-Everyone else, my grandchildren,
-everyone else is fluent.
-I didn't really have a choice.
-It was important
-to make the next step.
-Is there a lot to do here
-in Merthyr with the Welsh language?
-Yes, there's a lot. Canolfan Soar
-is the heart of Welsh in the area.
-It's important to know
-who can speak and where they go.
-They go to pubs.
-There's a walking club that starts
-at the museum every week.
-There's plenty to do.
-In 2015, you won the title
-of Welsh Learner of the Year.
-Did you expect to win?
-Was it a shock?
-Yes, I expected it! No!
-I'm still in shock now.
-A lot of people who entered
-were much better than me.
-But there were other aspects
-like helping in the community...
-..developing the language and
-supporting people who are learning.
-A lot of things are important when
-you win Welsh Learner of the Year.
-We're at Canolfan Soar
-in the centre of Merthyr.
-What happens here?
-What's the purpose of the centre?
-It's to develop the language
-in the area.
-Not just in Merthyr
-but in the valleys.
-We do a lot of things
-through the Welsh language.
-We do ballet and other classes.
-We draw in a lot of people
-who are learning.
-We've got almost 20 classes here
-It's just a special place.
-How often do you come to the centre?
-It's a wonderful place.
-I come here to learn about local
-history with other adults.
-It's every Tuesday.
-It's finishing up now
-It's a wonderful place, the staff
-are great. There's a cafe.
-People like Gari are wonderful.
-People like Gari are wonderful.
-He's like a saint.
-Of course, yes.
-He's alright, yeah.
-He helps every day.
-Fair play. What's here?
-It's the cafe.
-Ryan is also learning Welsh.
-We help people if they come in.
-Maybe they just
-want a cuppa and a chat.
-We're ready to help them too.
-Tomorrow, there'll be a class here
-and another one here.
-It's full to the brim every week.
-All the classes are in there.
-This is the entrance
-to the theatre.
-This is the theatre, Theatr Soar.
-How many people does it hold?
-It's up to 250 now.
-Originally, when this was a chapel,
-it could hold over 500 people.
-Right, up we go.
-It's wonderful, isn't it?
-It's wonderful at night
-when a show is put on...
-..and the lights come down
-and the sound system is on.
-It's a wonderful place.
-The theatre is special.
-Gari, before I go, I'm taking photos
-of some of the people I meet.
-Can I get a photo with you?
-A photo of Gari. Cheese!
-There we are. Wonderful.
-Happy with that?
-Great. That's special.
-After all the activity,
-I need to eat.
-It's time to find some food.
-for everyone here...
-..from the traditional Italian cafe
-..to more modern places like
-It offers sandwiches, burgers
-and obviously pizza.
-There are a lot of different places
-to eat in Merthyr.
-This place has caught my attention.
-A beautiful building on the corner
-of the high street.
-I've heard good things about Jol's.
-Quality food and a relaxed
-Here we are,
-some solid wooden tables...
-..that make me want to do one thing,
-sit down and enjoy my food.
-Welcome to Jol's.
-This looks great.
-I didn't expect this for lunch.
-One, two, three.
-One for luck!
-Great, thanks very much.
-The food was wonderful.
-Gus, we're here in one of Merthyr's
-most historic buildings.
-Before we go in.
-We've got the red dragon here...
-..and a saying "Y Ddraig Goch A
-What's the significance of the
-dragon. Why is it here?
-It's interesting that they chose
-to use the red dragon...
-The red dragon and this mosaic...
-..was placed here before the dragon
-was officially on the Welsh flag.
-So this was on the floor here...
-..before the red dragon
-was on the Welsh flag.
-We're one of the first places to
-officially display the red dragon.
-There's a crack in the mosaic too.
-That wasn't the original intention.
-There's a story behind it.
-The mosaic is an original part of
-We left the crack because it
-happened before the building opened.
-So it wasn't the artist's intention
-to make the crack.
-Yes, it happened naturally.
-Nobody knows why.
-It's nice. It works.
-Wow, what a building,
-it's very nice.
-Tell us a little
-of the building's history.
-it was the town hall and court.
-The council sold it to someone...
-..who wanted to do turn it
-into a night club in the '80s, '90s.
-After a while,
-it closed down as a nightclub.
-It closed down and eventually
-got turned into an arts centre.
-That's what happens here
-on a daily basis now.
-What's in this building
-There's a cafe if you want a cup
-of tea or something.
-There's a gallery with exhibitions.
-There's a theatre too.
-It's worth seeing the building.
-There are portraits around.
-Who are all these people?
-They're heroes and villains.
-We've made a book explaining
-who they are.
-with a link to Merthyr.
-People who have created history
-and are from Merthyr.
-Yes, you can see Merthyr's history
-through the years.
-If I'm honest,
-before doing this programme...
-..Merthyr wouldn't have been
-at the top of my holiday list.
-I've changed my mind.
-After packing, I've had a chance
-to relax, had some adventures...
-..learned some history
-and met interesting people.
-A perfect holiday,
-I'm sure you'd agree.
-For more information,
-head to our website.
-Next time, I'll be
-heading to Betws-Y-Coed.
-I'll see you then.
-Today, I'm in Cardigan
-to meet a father and son...
-..who paint pictures.
-Aneurin Jones, and his son, Meirion,
-are successful artists...
-..but their work
-is very different.
-If you need help
-to follow the programme...
-..consult the website or the app.
-about the subtitles too.
-They say Aneurin Jones is my name.
-That is my name, and I've been
-Aneurin Jones from the beginning.
-from the Brecon Beacons...
-..on the border between the
-old Carmarthenshire and Breconshire.
-I have two influences in my life.
-I lost my freedom in Cardigan.
-I've been very happy living here.
-I feel as if there's a trickle
-of Cardi blood in my veins.
-I can understand Cardis.
-I know all about their cunning...
-..their wisdom and their kindness.
-I've been a full-time artist
-since I retired as a teacher.
-This is the product
-of my work and my life.
-Ultimately, that's what it is...
-...my life, my way of life...
-..my way of thinking,
-my way of interpreting life.
-What inspired you to become
-an artist in the first place?
-What inspired me?
-It goes back through
-many generations of the family.
-I come from a family of dreamers...
-..a family full of creativity
-and, hopefully, across the board...
-that's steeped in culture.
-Most of my family
-come from rural areas.
-They are plebeian and that's why
-the language is so important to me.
-Language is the creative force.
-Where do you find
-your creative inspiration?
-The small rural shows.
-A radius of around 20 to 25 miles
-from this area.
-That's where I meet the characters.
-Sadly, these characters
-The way they stood
-or leant on the gate...
-..the 'iet' or 'gat'
-in local parlance.
-They don't lean on gates anymore.
-They dress differently.
-The youngsters, the new wave...
-..there's little difference
-between young men living on farms...
-..and young men
-living in towns and cities.
-The most recent series of paintings
-is the Harvest Moon series.
-Tell us more about it.
-It's the product of 50 years
-of work, a long time.
-Some people think
-it shows a development.
-I'm not sure if it's a development
-or whether it's come full circle.
-It's those first experiences
-that always rise to the surface.
-Farming life today...
-..doesn't inspire me as an artist...
-..but when I meet people
-who've come down from the hills...
-..to attend the small rural shows...
-..and they gather together
-to talk and have fun...
-..to discuss, debate
-and look at livestock...
-plenty of inspiration.
-I've got to know these characters
-after all these years.
-They accept me...
-..not necessarily as an artist...
-..but as a person they know...
-..and to whom
-they feel a sense of belonging.
-White horses are important,
-particularly in Welsh mythology.
-They go back over many centuries.
-It's come down to this age too.
-If someone saw a spirit,
-it would be white.
-Often, my forefathers
-would see white horses.
-I think I saw a white horse myself,
-to be honest.
-People think I'm pulling their leg,
-but it's true.
-Both myself and my brother, Gron...
-..saw the same horse
-passing the farm window...
-..when we were nine
-or ten years old.
-I remember running out
-and there was nothing there.
-If these four walls could talk,
-they'd have a story to tell.
-They wouldn't always tell the truth.
-Tell us more about the process
-of drawing a picture.
-Do you take a picture
-using a camera first...
-..or do you sketch
-the picture first?
-A little of both.
-If there's a quick movement...
-..a Welsh Cob, a horse running...
-..you can't honestly sketch
-a picture of a horse running.
-I get a camera to catch
-the action, that special movement.
-Then I work on the composition.
-I work out
-where everything will go.
-The same is true of this picture.
-Where does this character go?
-Which two stand together?
-Then the problems start,
-when you're drawing or painting.
-Which colours do you use?
-What mood are you in?
-If I'm tired, if I've been
-washing dishes or hoovering...
-..in all seriousness...
-..it shows up in the picture.
-A lot of blue colours.
-Some people call this
-the Celtic melancholy.
-At other times, you can feel happy
-and full of enthusiasm.
-You create something more colourful.
-That's why I use red
-for the roof sometimes.
-A breath of fresh air.
-How much time
-do you spend in the studio?
-My wife thinks
-I spend too much time here.
-She shouts at me sometimes,
-thinking I'm asleep!
-I sometimes am!
-It's a kind of release.
-They call it escapism.
-Be careful how you use
-and where you emphasize that word.
-that's what creativity is all about.
-You escape from reality.
-For many people, reality is cruel.
-With this, you escape from reality.
-You create your own reality.
-When the children were young...
-..did they enjoy visiting Dad
-in the studio as he worked?
-They spent hours in here
-without me knowing.
-There's a little stool behind me.
-This is the stool
-Meirion would sit on.
-That's it -
-an old-fashioned milking stool.
-He'd watch you
-and be inspired himself.
-He'd get ideas,
-not that he needed them.
-He had his own ideas.
-When I was seven years old,
-Mam-gu's brother, Benjamin Jones,
-a craftsman from Llanddeusant...
-..walked nine miles across the
-mountains to his sister's funeral.
-He met a man of the same age,
-both in their 70s...
-..who'd moved from Llanddeusant,
-across the mountain...
-..to live in a farm
-Both had attended the same
-primary school in Llanddeusant...
-..but hadn't seen each other
-They met that day.
-One wore a heavy black cloth coat
-and a bowler hat.
-They shook hands.
-I was just a boy. I could see these
-two muscular men shaking hands.
-They had huge hands.
-I've interpreted that
-in a picture many times.
-of my subconscious today.
-These are part
-of Aneurin's autobiography.
-It's all become one...
-..in one large,
-..in this room and in this place.
-Is there one picture
-that sums up Aneurin's work?
-One picture you'd like people to
-remember when they think of Aneurin.
-Possibly Llyn y Fan Fach,
-the mythical tale.
-There's also a picture I painted
-many years ago called Dau Werinwr.
-I create about four pictures
-in print, initially...
-..for those who wanted them.
-I think they've reached
-many countries by now...
-..including Australia and America.
-People requested Dau Werinwr
-or Llyn y Fan.
-Is it difficult
-to let go of a picture...
-..a picture that's taken up
-hours and hours of your time?
-That's an excellent question.
-It happens to be true.
-You bid farewell to a member
-of your family, to some extent.
-You sell a part of you.
-It's been raised and nurtured
-inside you, as a person...
-..for perhaps 50 years.
-Or 25 years, whatever.
-It sees the light of day...
-..on a canvas at a particular time.
-After the break,
-I'll spend time with Meirion Jones.
-What will he have to say
-about his father, Aneurin?
-I've met the father.
-Now, I'll spend time with the son.
-is also a full-time artist.
-He lives just outside Cardigan.
-If you need help
-to follow the programme...
-..consult the website or the app.
-about the subtitles too.
-I'm Meirion Jones.
-I'm an artist. I live near Cardigan,
-in a place called Rhoswerdd.
-I've been an artist
-for over a decade.
-I tend to paint pictures
-of what surrounds me...
-..people, coastlines and landscapes.
-How would you describe your work?
-I think it's work
-that constantly evolves.
-I don't think it falls
-into any specific category.
-I paint landscapes,
-coastlines and people.
-Some of my work
-is more experimental.
-What excites me as an artist...
-..is the evening light...
-..in Ceibwr, Aberystwyth,
-Aberporth or Gwbert.
-comes alive in the light.
-Without the light, the landscape
-is dull and dead in some ways.
-The light, which is incredible
-in this part of the world...
-..is like magic
-that brings everything to life.
-When Meinir and yourself
-..did you enjoy watching
-your father painting in his studio?
-It was an instinctive experience.
-Both of us were interested
-in what was happening.
-we'd sit on a small milking stool...
-..and watch what he did.
-We took it all in.
-It might not have been evident
-at the time...
-..but the sponge in the memory
-can hold a lot.
-which colours worked together...
-..and how the composition developed.
-When did you realize
-you wanted to be an artist?
-I think the penny had dropped
-before I was born.
-Something has always been there.
-It's been a long discussion.
-Is it the upbringing or is it
-something deeper, in the genes...
-a person's development?
-In my case,
-I think it was a bit of both.
-appeared naturally around me.
-I was very aware that they were
-more than paint on wood.
-When Joanna and I
-first moved to Rhoswerdd...
-..this building was a cowshed.
-We've transformed it into a studio.
-This is where it all happens.
-We spend more time here
-than we do in the house.
-This is the place
-we're naturally drawn to.
-This place screams and shouts out...
-This is where the mess
-turns into something else.
-It might be a reflection
-of my personality.
-Everything all over the shop.
-This is the way I work.
-I'm comfortable doing it like this.
-In Aneurin's pictures,
-we see thickset farmers...
-..with wide shoulders
-and large hands.
-In many of your pictures,
-we see women.
-Did you intentionally
-follow a different path?
-It wasn't intentional.
-I think it's something
-that came from somewhere else.
-The female shapes
-I see on the landscape...
-..and in the sea in particular...
-..emerge naturally from me.
-Has your father influenced you
-in a specific way over the years?
-The influence has been constant.
-The greatest influence
-is noticing the world around you...
-..being sincere and enjoying
-the process of painting.
-That's very important -
-deriving pleasure from the process.
-Moving away from the accuracy
-In the process of simplifying...
-..you find the mystery
-which catches someone's attention.
-I'm attracted to Ceibwr...
-..because it's been an inspiration
-to me for many decades.
-I hope it continues to inspire me.
-This scenery is incredible.
-There's no need to ask you
-what attracts you to this place.
-Everything is here.
-It's such a beautiful day.
-The weather is mild, there's
-a gentleness in the landscape.
-As you can imagine, during rough
-weather, it can be very dramatic.
-How often do you visit this place?
-I come here to recharge
-the batteries fairly often.
-It needs to be done.
-I find plenty of inspiration here.
-The power and emotion of the sea
-seeps into me.
-That energy can become
-There's so much power and movement
-in the sea.
-How do you transfer that
-creatively into a picture?
-There's no point trying
-to describe every wave individually.
-Being fluid in your attitude
-is more important than that.
-Let the water
-do what it does naturally.
-Random effects are created,
-As we look out,
-every second is different.
-Don't capture the moment,
-absorb the experience of being here.
-that happens over time.
-All of us, as members
-of the family who like art...
-to the meeting point in Heulwen...
-..to seek advice...
-..and make sure
-that we're on the right path.
-It's true to say that you've both
-collaborated on different projects.
-Yes, I think the most recent
-was a commission we received...
-..to paint the history of Drefach,
-Felindre, near Newcastle Emlyn.
-We thought it would take
-three months to complete.
-A year later, we were still at it.
-There were so many things
-to include in that picture.
-We spent a lot of time planning it.
-I think I was responsible
-for the spadework...
-..and I transferred responsibility
-for the final details at the end.
-What was it like collaborating
-with Meirion, your son?
-I had problems right from the start.
-No, it was a wonderful experience.
-We've shared the same vision,
-when it comes to art and drawing...
-..for many years.
-We see eye-to-eye -
-sometimes we debate and discuss...
-..but we usually agree
-with the vision.
-Do you see aspects of your work
-in Meirion's work?
-Meirion has his own way
-of looking at things.
-He has personal feelings
-that belong to this age.
-There are two different eras -
-father and son...
-..but two different periods
-in a person's life.
-have shown the same interest...
-..Tomos, Ifan and Deio with Meinir.
-Ifan, tell us more
-about this sketch.
-I was in our house in Carmarthen
-when I drew this one Christmas.
-Tad-cu was sitting down.
-I sat in front of him
-and started to sketch.
-I enjoy sketching,
-I've been doing it for many years.
-Often, on farms
-and in agriculture...
-..the son will follow
-in his father's footsteps...
-..and become a farmer.
-they have that responsibility.
-With an artist,
-the son often follows another path.
-With my son, Meirion...
-..it just so happens
-that my interest and creativity...
-..has passed on to him.
