Took delivery of our family portrait this evening.
London July 2022
Met Christian for a coffee and a quick stroll to the heath and back in the morning. It was looking rather parched after the heatwave.
Back to the heath once again in the evening.
Brought along some Gevrey Chambertin, now the peak of the heatwave was over it seemed appropriate once again.
The view from where I was sitting.
Zoomed in on St Paul's and the Shard.
Some runner running up and down Parliament Hill - rather them than me.
Back at home, Erika proudly displaying her series of maths challenge certificate - one each from the past three years.
The newly delivering painting, on the mantelpiece, and for comparison I brought out the weird portrait my friends had commissioned for my 40th birthday.
Here's the finished family portrait. I'm happy with how I turned out. I'm not sure Jeremy quite perfectly captured Erika's face, but I love the composition and the setting.
