Painting 'Reclining Carer (Project Manager Simon Wilgress, Parkinsons Carer)'


I wanted to splash out a little with Simon, a Parkinson's carer who looks after his mother. Perhaps because he seemd so young, perhaps because the Parkinsons story can be joyful or playful. Perhaps because he needed a holiday.

Simon agreed to lie down on the grass, with the sun behind him, and immediately I felt bank holiday weekends, ice cream and sunshine. I added an effervescing texture here to give it a sense of release.

Simon, many thanks for all you do, and for sharing your face.
