The inspiration for my portrait is my grandpa. He is 88 years old with three children, seven grandchildren and one great-grandson. Grandpa has trouble remembering things that happen in day-to-day life but has clear recollections about events in his past. The thing that amazes me is that he grew up in a totally different world to the one I have grown up in. Listening to stories of his childhood has made me realise how much our world will be completely different when I am 88 years old.
