It is always a privilege to complete a commission for someone, and a special honour to be entrusted with an image that means so much to that person. This piece has been my main focus for a few weeks and I'm so glad to be able to deliver it to its new home. I love the prairies and the foothills and the family history connected with this special place. Every generation of my family has been born in a different country and so I value those families who are grounded in a particular and beautiful place. There is something so special about families who keep coming together in a place filled with memory, of both good times and bad, and supporting one another through time. I am always so grateful when I'm given the opportunity to complete such a meaningful task.
