Murray’s Children

The children’s father Murray and I were close friends when we were teenagers in Christchurch.  We gradually lost touch, but I often thought about Murray and how he was getting on.  Many years later we unexpectedly met up again through a mutual friend when I was visiting Christchurch.  It was wonderful seeing him after all those years and meeting his family.  Murray said how much he would like it if I could paint his three children Megan, Caitlin and Finlay.  But all too soon Murray became unwell and when I finally made the trip down to Christchurch to deliver the finished portrait to him he couldn’t communicate with words any more.  So sad!
