The other day I listened to some people discussing ‘Sunshine on Leith’ by the proclaimers and what it meant to them . The words got me thinking of people and animals that have been an important part of my life, and that I have had to say goodbye to.

I would like to share with you a few paintings or details, in which those loved ones became my subject matter, and the happy times I remember . I give thanks .
