I was contacted by a wonderful mother to create this painting of her son and his rugby team. She sent me several photos to work from, but as soon as I saw this one I knew it was the one.
I love the way they're all linked together, so happy. It makes me wonder what they were doing right before this moment and then right after. Did these boys grow up together? Have they been friends from the time they could walk? I like to think so.
Maybe it's because I have three boys of my own but I could instantly relate to this image. There's something about a smiling, happy, young boy that gets straight to my mother's heart. And I was really happy that I could share that with another mother who lives across the world from me.
