KEDAR CLARKE who is our
FIRST Winner in our
Portrait Contest with
The Celebrity Artist, Jamaal Rolle!
Kedar, of Nassau, Bahamas submitted the following photograph of his
deceased friend and wrote, "Pictures capture memories that you hope will
last a lifetime. On August 1st 2011, I lost my best friend, brother and
confidant; this shook my entire world. Garvin was the most lively, d
and encouraging person I knew. Calling him a friend is an
understatement because he became and remained my hero. Over the years
I've received tons of compliments for my work, my strength and my focus
on achieving my goals. It was during those years of the greatest
challenges in my life that Garvin became my biggest support system and
the sole person that I sought for counsel, aside from God.
Despite his physical absence, the lessons and love he shared still
lingers with me and those memories can never be removed from my heart.
The gift of this portrait isn't for me, but rather his loving mother
Anna, as a visual reminder of the exceptional soul she once bore."
"Our selection team felt this was such a loving and touching story, that we had to select him," said Robbin Whachell, Editor, TheBahamasWeekly.com. The Celebrity Artist will now take the photograph of Garvin and draw a life-like
black and white portrait sketch valued at $1000.
Upon word of his win Kedar responded with what inspired him to enter the contest, "
As soon as I saw the ad for a photo by Jammal Rolle, I was so excited
and anxious to have a chance to have him sketch my photo! I read the
information and it was just around the time of my best friend's birthday
and the words "memories" stuck out to me. I knew then that the photo
wasn't gonna be of me, or for me. Just as Garvin gave so selflessly in life, I
wanted to give this 'memory' to his beloved mother. I'm so
happy my entry was chosen. THANKS BAHAMAS WEEKLY!"
