Rob commissioned the portrait as a gift for his mother. Fiona selected this image as it captures a quiet, reflective moment and a characteristic pose as well as Rob’s love of sailing. This is a striking portrait intended to give pleasure to his mother, revealing Rob’s strong, self-determining character, his direction and action, and his values. For Fiona this piece also became a study in shade upon shade of white, as expressed in the sail and Rob’s shirt and hat.
