Our painting by Francesca, which hangs on our living room wall, is called Diving Down Down Deep Into the Blue Down Down. Though we are diving down into the swirl of the turbulent sea, it evokes for me also the unknown of deep outer space, drawing you in a rush to a central point. But this is no black hole, this is a pinpoint of brightness that I see as the light of hope and its emanations are breaking up the darkness into fragments that no longer have the power to bring you down. The paintwork is rich and bold and blue with depth and texture that both rewards close attention and gives energy and focus to our living room.
