26 Jan 2015: New portrait – Gary, an apple a day


Portrait of my brother Gary when he was just a little lad. He was so cute!

The apple is significant as I always remember him munching on them. Once my Grandma took one of the pips from his apple and planted it in a pot and left it on her kitchen window sill until it was big enough to plant in a border. We would often be photographed in front of the sapling as it grew. Not sure what happened to it in the end. It was probably removed after it grew too big for its spot once both my Grandma and Grandad had passed away.

I will be doing its sister companion (literally!) eventually.
