LUKE, FAVOURITE T by ALASTAIR ADAMS
"Childhood just hasn’t been and isn’t the same for his generation as it was for mine and we really don’t know the long term impact of that. None of us can predict the future or controll the direction for our children and I guess that’s partly what this painting is about; what happens next? …Portraits are great for that.
Not only is he about a foot taller since but over that time he’s proved himself highly independent, resilient and motivated. He’s doing his ‘stare’ where, as a Dad, I haven’t got a clue what’s going on inside. He might not say much but he’s not to be underestimated. Still waters really do run deep and it’s a pleasure to watch him coming in to his own"
