AN international artist has produced a tribute piece to celebrate the transformation of his former college.
John Duffin was due to return to Furness College today to unveil his painting of the Copper Box, the main building of the institution's £43m campus redevelopment.
After leaving school at 16 Mr Duffin became a draughtsman apprentice at Barrow shipyard. During the early 1980s he studied evening classes in oil painting, and A-Levels in art, English and sociology at the college in Channelside.

A wonderfully atmospheric painting, reflecting the ever changing landscape both natural and man-made on our south lakes peninsula.
