A Picture Of Hope (Peter Rabbit) - Original

Mark Davies British Artist

  • In April 2018 I ran the Virgin Money London Marathon in aid of Alzheimer’s Research UK. My father, Michael has been restricted for the past several years by Primary Progressive Aphasia and has been immense in dealing with it. Ultimately there is no bigger challenge that I could do than the Marathon, no better cause to run for and no better charity to fundraise for.

    I have created an original piece of art inspired by Beatrix Potter’s beautiful tales of Peter Rabbit. The gate to Mr McGregor’s garden is propped open for all to enjoy, the rusting garden rake that once terrorised Peter and friends stands against it, for some time it seems as the beautiful garden roses have grown up and around it to keep firmly in place.

    Mr McGregor is living with Alzheimers and whilst he still embraces his deep-rooted love for gardening, he has forgotten to be angry and instead a much more youthful and warm trait has blossomed where he now looks at those who come to visit as friends and seeks comfort in those that bring affection and love through the gate. Whilst hesitant, not knowing how to adjust, fearful at first, those that surround Mr McGregor draw strength and courage from Jemima, a wonderful figure who never stops guiding, pointing them towards the sun.

    With everyone working as one you find the courage to abstain from the acceptance that a new chapter simply awaits but instead to write new ones, to make more pages within each chapter, to make new memories to replace those lost, to change the ending. A picture of hope from me to many.

    The full sale price was donated to my fundraising effort with the support of Wishbone and Images In Frames Gallery - Wanstead.
