From a Faraway Friend


When I wrote about Aleksandra’s portrait yesterday, I referred to the artist as a dear friend. This new piece, just published on her blog, shows why. Please do read it. It’s the story behind the portrait, and so much more.

Thanks, William for alerting us to this post.

It is such a powerful story and its labours and fruits are extraordinary.

I commend you both - you, William and Aleks - for your show of strength in friendship, love and creativity.

I'm awed.

Thanks, also, to everyone who followed the link and left comments there. Aleksandra is a brave, generous, gifted person.
