As a thank you to the man who introduced R and I, I offer to do a portrait of the man himself, Tim W. I ask for photos and he duly sends some but I need good quality ones and preferably with him on his own. After a short while he obliges and sends a stunning photo capturing his spirit completely.

The image is powerful and the lighting and detail good, featuring his trademark short cropped white hair. This painting takes a month and I’m happy with the result, so is Tim. No trips this month but I do get a valentine’s card. The first in five years.
