ON THE BRIGHT SIDE is a double portrait of big sister, Bella, aged 3 and a half, and little brother, Alexander, aged 16 months. Bella is shy, creative, clever and loving and Alexander is determined, cheeky and loves to giggle.

Their special bond is captured in a moment of sibling love set among English pleasant pastures green. It reminds us of the joy that children bring despite the stresses of everyday life. Here, the pampas grass waves in the breeze, the lawn is lush and soft underfoot and the sun shines brightly over the trees and hills.

The portrait is a gift across the miles as a token of a special Australian-English friendship.
