I drew it from memory in Lisbon in June 2008. No big ambition behind, just an impression. I was sitting in a tram heading down to the centre of the city and I saw them purposefully pounding the road, in the other direction. I was deeply touched by the scene, had 1000�s of feelings at the same time, from total sadness to total happiness. But I above all admired the way they seemed to lead their life with courage and determination, at this high age. and I was infinitely happy that they still did it together!!!
You can read in my blog how this painting ended up being chosen to celebrate the international day of the senior citizen in Costa Rica and being printed in a newspaper there!
