.......My friend, the very one who designed my pretty header at the top of this blog, is an artist. A very talented artist who’s work I have always admired – so why not get her to do a painting for us. Something unique and personal.
I started with the idea that I wanted something based around this photograph of Syd. It is such a dramatic shot and I always thought it would be amazing with some sort of dreamlike background – and that is really all I gave Shelley to go on. On Christmas Eve she arrived with the finished painting, a surprise for my other half who knew nothing about it, and a joint Christmas present to the two of us from my Grandad. I am utterly in love with it, it is just so perfect.
