This is a large commission I painted in November/December. It was a surprise gift for our friend's 40th birthday, his two lovely young boys. They were on holiday on Brehat with us when the photos were taken, and the painting was commissioned by his wife and his mother. A thoughtful gift! I must just say a huge thankyou to everyone who has left a comment on my blog in the last few weeks. I read and appreciate them all, but unfortunately until we have the Internet set up at home again I'm unable to answer by way of leaving a comment myself. So, thank you all!
