From a photo in Hullo dated 19-8-95

I have a fascination for mother and child pictures. They epitomise love and tenderness and therefore make a woman look her most gentle and approachable.

I had to put a twist in it so made Sean darker skinned than in reality. I felt that it reflected better her personality. I have to admit that this is not one of my favourite paintings. The landscape does nothing for me although the photo was taken in this setting.

I suppose, I want more than face value meaning from a painting and this painting offers nothing but bland reality. Boring! I should have painted them sitting in a flower or better underneath an erupting volcano then there would have been some real meaning to get into, but at the time I had not got into computer graphics to inject some more chemistry. Perhaps I will have another go at it but in semi- abstract style.
