The sense of longevity I get in an emotional and physical sense viewing a painting of my own family is difficult to convey. The potential of a particular piece being in family hands long after I've gone, is for me, quite powerful. "My Dad painted this when I was 5, " is a statement that would twang the firmist of heartstrings! Images of treasured love ones I've created over the years for clients has always created a similar response. (So far!!!)
Although different feelings and emotions, the same can be said of pieces I've produced from around the World/Britain. Some folks love their photos-but perhaps a drawing or painting may add an extra special touch to an already special memory?!
