The painting is a tribute to a friend who passed away in February 2021. David had learning difficulties and was one of a group of people at FortuneWorks, a centre for adults with learning difficulties, where I have been A.I.R since 2016. Though Covid impacted directly there were side effects of the pandemic that passed somewhat unseen. David had a simple and loving heart, and cared for others , including his elderly mother, with inspiring patience and gentleness. And he was funny!
For me the spiritual battle is to keep going, putting one foot in front of the other, knowing we are connected and taking heart from those in our community whose lives demonstrate love in action, and who are an example of how to live unselfishly and for others, with stoicism and good humour.
" Knowing whatsoever good thing any man doeth the same shall be received of the Lord, whether he be bond or free. "
