These were some of our best years together before life took us in different directions for the last time. We remained friends until his death a couple of years ago but we had to work around things we knew we could never resolve…. My husband David always says “this is my good fortune” and it is true.
I have thought about this painting a lot in recent years. If the art collector who purchased this and another figurative portrait (that I will also include just because I can) is still around and still has it, I might try and get a better photograph. These images have reflections from the glass and this is interfering with our viewing of the paintings. However, they are better than nothing at all which was where I was before I went up into the loft to find the boxes of old photographs.
