Before I start I have to say that this was way out of my comfort zone (I'm not a painter), but it had to be done, and I'm happy with the way it came out. (Still not sure about the teardrop though)
On Friday Jan 20th my wife passed away after 6 months of battling with cancer. Thankfully she passed quickly and peacefully with family at her side. Although we had separated, we were still married and still friends, just with different outlooks on life. Freesias were her favourite flowers due to their scent, so what else could I paint.
I have to praise my daughters who have been wonderful throughout, but especially my youngest who gave up work and became a round the clock carer, even though it left her physically and mentally drained at times, and who kept her mum alive when she collapsed until the medics arrived.
Thank you to those who have sent messages and kind words, it's much appreciated.
