What an honor it was, to be asked to paint the corgis for Her Majesty! I had been painting every Thursday morning with terminally ill children and promised them they could come with me to Buckingham Palace to deliver this painting to the Queen.
I hired a big bus and off we all went. Unfortunately, as I couldn’t tell Her Majesty exactly when I would finish the painting, we were greeted instead by her butler, who was indeed very charming – I felt like the real Cinders (get it Cindy ..Cinderella!)
Everyone says how did you feel when I painted it, I felt great, it doesn’t matter where it goes however, The Queen works so hard I’m pleased she’s enjoying it after all isn’t that what art is about passing your energy on to others.”
