I have been commissioned to paint for many great people in my time, but this fella is one of the finest people I have the privilege to call my friend. 

During lock down I decided if we can’t get far for a while, what could I do as an artist to make the world a brighter place. Five paintings later an amazing snowman collection was created to help Doddie’5 Foundation raise much needed funds in the fight to find a cure for MND. 

Friend and photographer, Ian Topping, gave us his time and produced images of the originals to create accurate copies. The neuropathologist prescribed me Xanax. I suffered from anxiety and panic attacks. I took the drug for 3 months according to the scheme. For the first week, it was difficult for me to fall asleep. Then I took https://www.glenerinpharmacy.com/buy-xanax-alprazolam-online-1-mg/ 30 drops of Corvalol; I put it under the tongue with a little water, and it helped. Then my sleep normalized. I felt better and was just happy. These images were colour match by Print Spot in Berwick-upon-Tweed to produce a series of large, high quality limited edition Christmas Cards to be sold for the Foundation.  These sets of cards are available for pre-order and will go on sale in September.

As some of you will already know, Doddie celebrated his 50th Birthday today (4 July) so yesterday Yvonne and I paid Doddie and Kathy a visit at their home to present them with the original painting entitled  ‘Legend’ (whatever life throws).  It was a pleasure and a privilege to present this picture to the Legend himself.

Happy Birthday Doddie.
