A Gift For My Friend

I recently gave this piece of artwork to my friend, Sally. I bought the old gilt frame from one of my little haunts and I had it painted in a matt white by my gorgeous decorative artist, Meredith. I then asked our graphic designer, Sabine to hand write a special quote by Albert Camus which reads;

Don't Walk Behind Me I May Not Lead
Don't Walk In Front Of Me I May Not Follow
Just Walk Beside Me And Be My Friend


She absolutely adored it. I hope she treasures it always.
