You Were There

We've just had a visit from two of our nephews and their young families recently, and the children seemed intrigued by one of my paintings entitled  'Lavender and Dead Bilberries'.
This is a very early family painting and depicts our wedding day in 1969. Hazel wore lavender and my suit was a dead bilberry colour, (a sort of dark purple with dust over it) hence the title.
Infact, my best man was the only one in white - well it was the sixties!
Nancy and Iris thought their father looked cute in the painting but Fred and Francis wondered were their dad was.
I had to explain that he was still in his mummy's tummy (Alyson was heavily pregnant at the time) but was with us in spirit.
