"Be the Young, the Brave, the Powerful because the world is standing waiting for someone to come and change it! The words of James Blunt.

I have been thinking about our young people a lot lately. I wanted to sing their praises in this love letter and draw some attention to the wonderful people they are.

I feel that we need to support them as much as we can. We need to be with them, to listen to them and hold them close. There are so many different pressures for them and they need us to gently guide them and be their cheerleaders. I feel saddened that there are so many that have taken their lives because they must feel in absolute despair. We need you here dear ones.

Our young are incredible people. Keep chatting, keep creating the space and time to just be with them. They may not think they need us but they really do. Keep reminding them to value, respect and love their bodies. And that of others too.

Our children needed us a lot when they were little and they need us a lot more now in a different way.

I have created this artwork based on James Blunt’s song, “The Greatest”. The words are very powerful. The figure is reaching out in a garden of beautiful soft flowers.

It is titled “Be the Young, the Brave, the Powerful” and I painted most of it in one day. When I get in my zone I find it hard to stop! I started this piece with the inspiration of the Imaginary Future’s version of “Forever Young”. The words are what we wish for our Young. A beautiful song!

This is a very special artwork."
