In My Heart
I met this woman as I spent some time at a homeless shelter taking reference shots for a portrait project.
Shy and somewhat wary of me at first, she was eventually able to tell me a little bit of her story. She had been through a tough time - it is etched onto her face I feel.
She asked that if I paint her , could I please give it the title 'In My Heart' as a tribute to her husband who had died some months previous.
All proceeds from the sale of this piece will be donated to Shekinah, Plymouth.
