Still Standing

Here's the finished painting of Ben, called :

Still Standing



This painting will be added to my permanent gallery site
Pat Elliott Paintings


The title was inspired by Sir Elton John's song "I'm Still Standing" because the words of the song mean so much when viewed from Ben's perspective of being paralysed and then recovering.

In Lynne's own words:

Love it and LOVE the title - Elton John's still standing says it all too.
" Still standing better than I ever did, looking like a true survivor feeling like a little kid" it just sums it up perfectly as he was like a little kid with all that sea and sand. Yayyyyyyyyyy
