Caption from the Feb. 17, 1949, issue of LIFE. «The painting shapes up rapidly as Mr. Churchill obeys his own injunction to amateur painters: ‘Audacity is the only ticket.’ His painting costume includes a smock to protect his clothes and a 10 gallon Stetson, which he got years ago in California, to shield his head from the sun.»
