Commission for Continued Care, Harrogate – The Rainbow of Hope

There is something so special and magical about rainbows and during the pandemic it became a symbol of hope.

I was thus inspired to paint the names of more than 135 carers and office staff within a rainbow that arches over the Yorkshire countryside.
