The sadness of leaving war-torn Ukraine
Hope and Despair

A place of mourning
My 5 year old grandson looking after his 2 year old sister on a camping holiday last year.
Walking away, losing, old age, sadness.
My 94 husband has dementia.
Gouache and Pencil
From a photo that was recently in the Telegraph of an Ukrainian lady
"A portrait of the well known cook Nadiya. Apparently, despite the happy outward appearances that she presents to the camera, she suffers from anxiety related problems."
Fear - how to overcome it
The German text says that the way out of fear leads straight through it… i.e. you have to go through fear to be liberated of it. I think that’s quite a strong thought.
Faith, Hope and Charity/Love
"Here is a collage of faith, hope and charity/ love...apparently snowdrops signify hope, love and sympathy. "
Love, Devotion and Affection
Indian Ink and Watercolour
A Moving Moment
"A very watery acrylic painting. It is a moving moment from 15 years ago when our first grandchild was born."
Joy! And I suspect Freedom!
