Merry Christmas to my friends and family on AD


“Gift of Remembrance”


                  The painting I did of

Lambert Witbooi is no longer with his family

All I had to work from

Was a black and white ID Photo

His son Colin Witbooi

Asked me to do a painting,

To hang in their family business /workshop office

Colin is the exhaust mechanic

Who has been working on my car for many years

His DADDY gone now to another place
