But here it is, I got to personally deliver my latest @liverpoolfc painting. We talked about coffee, fishing, boxing, art and my sobriety!

‘Days like this I have to pinch myself, hard work truly does pay off! I feel blessed to be able to create Art and meet some incredibly lovely people along the way.

‘@paulsmithjnr thanks for arranging this mate, absolute gent ❤️

‘@tsimikas21 & Christina, thank you for your hospitality and kindness ❤️’

It looks to have been a day as brilliant as the art itself and it’s great to see that the cup-winning hero was so hospitable to his guest.
