Jim and the Pause
Oil on canvas
private collection France
100cm x 76cm
I met Jim in Bristol in 2018. He was homeless and was living on his own in a tent in a park next to a church. He had travelled extensively and had spent a large part of his life in Toulouse which is a place that I knew well having lived there myself for a number of years.
Jim had experienced much in his life, he had dealt with many problems yet still remained full of hope. I wanted to show the journey that he had endured as a winding road twisting and turning. Jim had now paused and was now deciding what to do next and where the path would take him.
I am happy to announce that 30% of all the proceeds of the sale will go to charity. The charities that I donate to are The Innocence Project based in the US and New Hope based in the UK. The Innocence Project’s mission is to free the staggering number of innocent people who remain incarcerated, and to bring reform to the system responsible for their unjust imprisonment (www.innocenceproject.org). New Hope exists to serve individuals who are homeless or vulnerably-housed through the provision of accommodation and opportunities to transform lives (www.newhope.org.uk)
The painting will be delivered professionally in a hand crafted frame together with a signed certificate of authenticity. Delivery is free.
