I set In Memory of Shining Stars up originally in 2017 to raise money for the terror attacks across the UK with a Black and White image of wild flowers with added colour to represent the Shining Stars we have lost. I decided to convert an Image I had taken to monochrome and then paint back In the flowers in colour which I felt represented the Shining Stars we lost. I have a brand new image which I have created from one of my photographs and I want to do something to help in this pandemic by continuing my series of In Memory of Shining Stars, with this 10 x 8 inch print which comes in a 12 x 10 bevel cut mount. The coloured flowers in amongst the blue cornflowers represent our Shining Stars that we have lost to Coronavirus. I have chosen the 2020 emblem on the bottom as it signifies the year rather than COVID 19 as I don’t like that word. It’s in remembrance of all the people we have lost, through all walks of life. Our Shining Stars. These prints are £18. This covers the cost of creating, printing and p&p to the U.K. and also a £5 donation for every print sold will go to Mind. A charity that does amazing work to help people cope with mental health issues which is incredibly important to many people during this pandemic. People went about their day, as we did. They looked forward, as we did. Their beds didn't get slept in, as ours did. I created these images with heartfelt thoughts and as a tribute to them all. No other words.
