Thomas McGoran (1927 - )


Thomas Mc Goran only began to paint when he retired from working with British Rail in 1988. His wife's retirement gift to him was a box of oil paints. Thomas cites Glasgow as the inspiration for his art work which depicts various scenes of Glasgow daily life. His paintings have been on display throughout February at The Forge shopping centre. You can see many of his paintings below.
