So this is what I have been busy with for weeks. The expressive studies really help me focus on the feeling I am trying to portray in my work:D
My reference for the lady is an old magazine picture I have carried around for the last 15 years.

Hi Sam, that is so very beautiful darling. You cannot imagine what an inspiration you were to Antonia. She starts at Wimbledon University in September, having had a false start at Oxford Uni, where she felt unfulfilled, seeing she wanted to major on Sculpture and Installation and God blessed her with a place at the University of Arts London, with three years fully funded with a wonderful place in halls close by. We always speak about you, Deon and the children with warm affection and it has been so precious to find you here on Facebook. God bless you and lots of love from Danny Anita and Antonia. xxx

Really beautiful Sam, you are blessed indeed and you may not have realised what an inspiration you were to Antonia. She starts at Wimbledon University in September after a false start at Oxford, where she found no real real fulfilment, seeing she wanted to do Sculpture and Installation and God blessed her with a place (fully funded for three years) at the University of Arts London, taking her desired subject. We always speak about you,  Deon and the children with warmth and affection and seeing you on here is such a precious discovery. Lots of love from us all. Danny, Anita and Antonia xxx
