Acrylic on canvas, 40.5 cm x 40.5 cm (16″ x 16″)
DEDICATION: For Lynnette Baird. So much can happen in one day. Here’s looking forward to a brighter tomorrow with a renewed appreciation of the important things in life.
Lynn, this painting was started prior to the Christchurch earthquake. Who knew what was about to happen?!
I was extremely hesitant about completing the piece, as you had found only one of your two cats after the quake. I could sense the joy in your email when #2 was located.
I am sure we all see the painful irony in that now you have a new painting, but no wall to hang it on. I will keep the canvas with me until you find somewhere new to live.
Our thoughts are with you and Phil (and Josie and Scottie).
