Happy Birthday Tony………..It is my friend Tony’s eightieth birthday today.
A therapist, lover of poetry, theatre and much more, Tony is a good friend and an especially good listener. An attribute that seems to be lacking in our society today.
Oil on canvas. I painted this about nine years ago. Since this painting and the header photograph, taken around the same time, Tony lost his favourite hat…however it will live on in these two images. Tony is a man of his word and completely trustworthy. When I first met Tony I was going through a difficult period and it’s fair to say that in many ways my trust of others had been tarnished. Over the years, Tony has been one of those people who has helped to restore that trust within me.
So thank you Tony and I hope you enjoy a wonderful day.
