We have this picture from Tony on the wall in our house in Skopelos.

I first saw it shortly after it was painted in 2008, when I lived on the island and looked after Tony’s cat, Grinia, through the winter. I loved the painting instantly, but at the time had no spare money to buy it! 18 months ago we bough our little house on Skopelos and got to know Tony better. He was a gentle man with a dry wit, and we enjoyed his company.

I loved the freshness of his paintings and was delighted when he opened up his studio for us to look around – there was the painting I had loved on sight in 2008, so we bought it! I am so pleased to have it on our wall in his memory. It feels like an era has ended, sadly.

With kindest thoughts to Anna-Karin and Zoe.
