The Dalai Lama came to visit Dunfermline, Fife (in Scotland) a few years back, and I had every intention of going to see him, was looking forward to it. On the grand day, it rained, not just rain but the type that is a monsoon, flooding the roads and pavements very quickly, and I decided not to go. On hindsight I regret it still! The opportunity to see His Holiness the Dalai Lama, and I let the rain deter me! Never mind… This painting was the image doing the rounds at that time, so it was some solace for me to paint him instead.
