In November my niece asked me to paint a picture of her boyfriend’s racing car as a Christmas present. He was a racing car test driver before COVID-19. He has now lost his job, access to the car, his sponsorship and a promising racing career due to the virus. He had an exciting year planned and all set to drive in Europe and in the States in 2020. I hope that the picture serves as a reminder and inspires him to never give up hope.
Lockdown has allowed time to practice painting. Online videos have provided helpful focused art course training. A previous, perhaps over busy lifestyle would not have allowed for this.
