The wife of my lovely next door neighbour passed away recently, and every time I walked past his house and asked how he was he would have a tear in his eye and reply, 'not too well.'
They were married for 60 years, and he missed her sorely.
So I painted this little portrait for him as a way to ease the pain a little.
He didn't realise what I was doing and when he saw it burst into tears. The portrait sits with him at home and helps to give him some comfort.
I was, and still am, so moved by his beautiful love story.
