This was a very special heart. A facebook friend Adriana had created a web page to raise money for her brother Colton a soldier in Afghanistan who had lost both his legs in an explosion. The money raised would help their parents to be able to travel across America and visit him as much as possible in hospital. What was so inspiring to me was that in the helicopter on his way to hospital Colton had made his mind up to accept his new situation, making it easier for everyone around him. I wanted to paint him a heart which I did and my friend Ben Capaldi wrote the words to go with it.
Colton has gone on with prosthetic limbs to achieve many amazing things.
