Memories Are Made Of This

I've just given a talk to the local Rotary Club about my painting 'Forget-Me-Nots'. As well as the picture I also took along the five suitcases of objects which inspired it.
I explained my ideas - that objects and images help to keep memories alive but also linked it to another experience I'd had  recently .
Having  taken some old photographs of the town centre to a residential home , one old lady's eyes sparkled as she remembered how she used to go to a particular cafe every Thursday with her mother for afternoon tea.
You can see my painting (I've just shut the pop-up gallery for the winter) on the ART LECTURES page on the website.
