André and his family were leaving Cambridge and wanted to remember their view across Chesterton Road onto Jesus Green. I suggested making it a memory of their home, too, to frame the view. As this was during the pandemic, I had to direct André to take the photos I needed, and I worked from these. I sent the finished piece to their new home just in time for Christmas.
“We unwrapped our “main present” on Christmas Eve and the painting is simply wonderful. We love the autumn colours and all the little details in the room including the dinosaur 🙂 It will remind us every day of our lovely years in Cambridge. Thank you for catching the view so brilliantly.” André Stoltzenburg
