My Friend Ann

I met my very first friend Ann when I was just 6.  I was a new girl at Hoon Hay Primary School in Christchurch. I remember Ann and I were standing next to each other writing on the blackboard at the back of the classroom and Ann asked if I wanted to come and play at her place after school. Of course I said yes, and so began a long friendship that still exists today.  Ann now lives in Hamilton where she lectures at Waikato University.  Of course when she was little, Ann didn’t have a cat called Sansa. She didn’t have a pink caravan either or sell candyfloss from it with her South American husband Roberto.  So this painting blends elements of the present and past together.
