‘Scarborough Fair’ – Day 8/365 (SOLD)

While it may not be the one Simon & Garfunkel we’re singing about, Cape Town’s Scarborough, or Scarbs as we locals like to call her, sure is a fair part of the world.
.
This painting was commissioned by an SA expat to their dear friend back home who will soon also be saying farewell to their Scarbs in the journey of seeking a new home. This beach, this bench was their special spot together.
.
My heart always rises like the tide with the sentiment upon which gifts like this are given. In her gift card, she wrote: “places don’t keep our memories, we take them with us.”
.
The whole song might not be apt but for these two friends this line (which I hope lives on in this tiny painting) sings true:
“Remember me to one who lives there, for once she was a true love of mine.”
