This elderly lady's photograph was advertising the fact that for £1 you could give a Bangladeshi back their sight with cataract surgery.   She reminded me very much of my 'The Jubilee Line', and I see her as a companion to her - a contrast in what life offers, and what money can buy.  Here she is about 120cms x 90cms on aluminium.

from Pontormo's 'Deposition from the Cross' Santa Felicita, Florence

I love the candy colours and light in this, and his fantastic composition:  this is another painting on the way.
