Very sad news in this last week that Margo MacDonald passed away. She was quite a formidable lady and I have enjoyed looking at the pictures of her from throughout her life that have been published over the last few days. I am working on a larger piece about Margo and here is a wee preliminary sketch.
The picture this is based on really connected with me and I loved her vitality. I can't imagine many modern politicians who would pose with a dog in this way. She was an inspiring lady, and I hope the Scottish Parliament can show how progressive they actually can be. The passing of the assisted suicide bill in due course would be the correct and most fitting tribute to her.
