I was in a melancholy mood I started this painting. So much tragedy and loss, not only the big events in the news but also many friends and clients had lost loved ones and I found myself absorbing the grief and sadness. It’s not my pain to bear and I don’t know why it affected me so deeply but I found myself lost in tearful thoughts too often. My therapy is to express myself through paint and I found comfort while painting this piece, ‘Unforgotten’. Amongst the delicate blue forget-me-nots, a fairy kneels with her head bowed. In her hands she tenderly holds a forget-me-not flower, lost in her memories of a loved one gone. In the process of painting it I found myself thinking fondly of my dear granddad. He died a few years ago, lost to Alzheimer’s and the forget-me-not flower is, of course, a symbol of the Alzheimer’s Society. This painting helped me get my thoughts and emotions in order. Our loved ones live on forever in our hearts, unforgotten.
