It is often said that through trials and suffering companionship is strengthened. I certainly know that to be true of some of my own friendships – that through shared experiences of negative or hurtful times we have been brought closer together. This painting is an image of a couple standing side by side and comforting one another throughout the chaos of life – the highlights and the troubles; the light and the dark times. They stick together and are made stronger through the trials, rejoicing together in the strength as in the calmer, easier times. Their relationship is one of love and trust, journeying together and not letting go of each other’s hands at any point along the way – keeping their sturdy gaze unwaveringly on one another and deepening every day, week, month and year in their love for one another.
