Couldnae Catch a Cold is a signed, limited edition, Giclee print of the original oil painting by Alexander Millar.

"Back in the day, we were pretty uptight when it came to demonstrations of affection and companionship - especially so for the working men in our community where a gruff, no-nonsense persona was expected.

Watching football matches, going fishing and playing dominoes were pastimes where, amongst the jokes and good natured teasing, the 'gadgie' could maybe let his guard down a bit, sharing his worries, his hopes and his dreams with his best pals.

This painting conveys the impression I have of working men back then, when the activity was only an excuse for a good old blether with a mate. And the title - it refers to what a poor angler an individual might be!"
