A DAY TINGED WITH SADNESS......

It's a sad day today in the studio, last night I learnt that sweet gentle Darcy had lost his bravely fought fight against Grass Sickness. Darcy and family feature in some larger commission pieces I'm working on. He was only four so it's equally sad that his potential will never be realised. He will  be remembered fondly by this artist and I'll never be able to buy a packet of polo mints without feeling his soft nose pushing my hand. My heart aches for Geoff and Joyce who have lost one of their 'bairns' and for Angie who has lost a friend......
