This painting is based on the true story of someone I'd once met through a friend. A twin who's parents had paid for his expensive boarding school education had a bittersweet existence as his twin brother was severely handicapped, and so instead of the best education that money could buy, he alternatively the had the best care that money could buy as a boarder in a care facility. I was told he loved to play with a coin, and I was shown some digital photos of him at a poolside, which touched me deeply. I still have the vivid memory of the images, although distorted, and how the sun flooded in through the windows above and bounced around. He died while still in his early twenties, leaving his brother with enough purpose and talent in him to live life for them both , and with some to spare. Money can buy many things, but not everything. This is not a purposely sad painting, it's just about life.
This painting is sold unframed, but I can attach some hanging wire for hanging it unframed.
Thank you for looking at my work.
