P.S.
I have not yet signed the painting because I may add a few touches to the portrait in order to enhance it. I still feel the painting needs more refinement. The painting is still wet and I will have to wait. Also, I don't really know how to use the camera, and the camera has made it look worse.
I have not been able to paint for several months due to the fact that on the 10 July 2019 my stepfather died suddenly at 3am. It was a complete shock to me.
I was giving him CPR while my mother was lying in bed next to him not knowing what was happening. My mother has Alzheimer’s disease.
From that moment on I had to deal with solicitors, accountants, banks and many organizations looking for documents and filling out many long forms.
I am now the only person left to look after my mother 24 hours a day and at the same time having to manage a property that has two restaurants and two flats and dealing with tenants and writing out new contracts etc.
I had to stop painting the portrait of Abby Martin for about two months. When I did get back to painting, after two-thirds of the way through the painting, disaster struck with paint issues and I had to throw away the canvas and start all over again on a new painting of Abby Martin.
The only thing that kept me going was the promise I made to Abby Martin I would do the painting.
