Bowie was a neighbour of ours back in the 70s. I saw her mopping the front porch one day and got her to pose for me…I said that one day I was going to paint a portrait of her…Bowie was mystified as to why I would want to do this! But I think she was a beauty….a kind hearted woman who did all of the extra milk and bread shopping for the elderly people in our street— at the time Bowie was over 70 herself! Bowie also used to make homemade ‘Scottish style’ meat pies and bring them down to us boys playing cricket test matches in the backyard! they were great…you just can’t beat homemade pies!!
It was over a decade until I got around to painting her portrait….I sent her a postcard of it and she was thrilled! thanks for those great memories Bowie !!!
