Journey is the Destination

Glued to the telly this am watching Wimbledon as Andy Murray becoming the first Brit in 77 years to win the Cup. After his heartbreaking defeat at Wimbledon last year to Roger Federer, this hard won victory was especially sweet. To his biggest fan as well- his Mum.

When it was all over, relieved and overjoyed, there she was hugging her son with deep emotion after he remembered to come back and kiss her after first going up to the box to thank his coach Ivan Lendl, girlfriend and friends.

This painting was a recent commission from a proud Mom to her graduating son. She told me that he has worn these shoes all over the world and that he cherished the shoes as much as the memories.

LOVE IT!!!!! Absolutely stunning and he was so surprised and I think, touched that I regarded his shoes in that way.
