Children in care, whether fostered, adopted or in children’s homes are now encouraged to do a Life Book to help them stay in touch with their roots and their culture. That wasn’t the case during my time in care and the knock on of that was six years of therapy in my forties.
Rather than explain this painting I thought I’d just let viewers make their own minds up and if it is of comfort to anyone then I’m doubly pleased. But I painted the picture during my period of therapy and it was one of many which helped me come to terms with some very painful issues. As time goes on I may upload more of the set if people enjoy them.
I guess you could say this website is my Life Book
