The wind whipping her hair, the sun coming from behind a cloud and causing her to cover her eyes in the blinding light. She is not put off, the wind and salt air - storms and sunshine are exhilarating experiences in themselves.
I am a mother to four girls, I see the way they face these new situations with a determination and acceptance that I admire. The world is changing fast and they are young and will have many more experiences ahead of them, so we do not want fear to be the driving factor. This image came to me as I reflected on a recent day trip to the shore just before isolation and how grateful I was to have had that day with them walking on the boardwalk, taking in the sun before our new storms arrived.
'Courage' is a 5x7 oil painting with Windsor and Newton paints. This painting is a canvas panel, framed and ready to sit on a shelf in a hand-chosen vintage frame. The frame has its own character and flaws that add to the timelessness of the collection and is a perfect fit for this unique piece.
