Peaceful Warrior is painted using mixed media. I used images I found online for reference, including a Modigliani painting. I wanted to illustrate despair but the finished result had a totally different feel. I posted screen shots on facebook and twitter as the portrait progressed, which I've never done before. It was interesting to see how people interacted and shaped the painting. The title is from a book by Dan Millman which my brother gave to me after I was diagnosed with motor neurone disease. It helped me to cope and find peace after devastation. Peaceful Warrior was one of three pieces exhibited at the Royal Academy Schools in July 2014, as part of the Marie Curie Life Embraced Exhibition.
