A surprise 50th for a husband from his adored wife. This is the view from the banks of a river in Zim where they got married. Three elephants crossed while they said their vows 25 years ago.
There were tears when the painting was presented (even from me). Here is his response.
"Emma, what an amazing surprise yesterday. I love, love, love it! I can’t thank you enough for painting one of my most favourite places in the world, a place I have so many wonderful memories of. I have already found myself lost in the canvas, transported back to that majestic river drifting with a fishing rod and cold beer in hand. The hot African sun beating down on me. I have have a very wide smile on my face."
