The final touches applied, this piece will soon be making its way to a collector in Japan.

Oliver No.3 / Final Touches

It has been a rough few days in my house as the news of the sudden and unexpected loss of a close and important friend has left us feeling adrift.

Linda watched my career as a painter from the very beginning and took a keen interest in everything I did. She should be reading about this painting right now as she was part of my family’s everyday life, like a grandmother to my children, and like a mother to my wife — we shared a very unique and special relationship. I admired Linda greatly and it was a genuine privilege and honour to have known her.

I wish it wasn’t true that we have to say goodbye so soon. Every time I share new paintings here on this blog I will always think of how Linda would have enjoyed seeing my work. I will forever miss her feedback and wisdom.
