Too young for strong beliefs?

Lynne Grier, 42

This is a painting of my daughter marching for Scottish Independence in Edinburgh 2019, she may be influenced by me, in the sense that I am a strong believer in independence, but she has her own very strong social sense of what is right and wrong when it comes to how we live and how we treat others. I wonder if this image is something she will look back on with pride – knowing that she turned up, and that, even at her young age, she had the power to help shape the future for herself and others?
