Fountain Park, Bishops Stortford

Fountain Park, Bishops Stortford. Fast forward past Coopers, and it was late afternoon on Saturday, August 11th 2007. Mel and I were once again looking for a place to draw. We found a park, complete with a massive skateboard ramp. Under a willow tree, we sat down and began to draw in Fountain Park, Bishops Stortford. It was a very peaceful time. I had been living with Mel and Sarah for about ten days. Without them, I would have been sleeping in Hyde Park. And it was a very cold summer.

The sun had a way of finding me those two weeks, shining in exactly when I needed it to. There's nothing like sunshine to make you feel like everything's going to be ok. I had no money, nowhere to live, and no one to wonder where I was. But the warmth of the sun brought me safe, everytime.
Mel moved back to Australia today, back to the sunshine.
