Glasgow artist pursues girls caught painting in Kelvingrove Park after a social media appeal


An artist from Glasgow managed to track down two young girls whom he had captured in a painting in Kelvingrove Park.

Charles Randak had asked Glasgow Live to help locate the girls from his play “Sunday in the Park with Snow”, which was carried by heavy snowfall in February.

The picture shows a typical scenario from the park; a family of two girls pulling sleds, one girl on the phone, friends catching up.

Charles wanted Charles to give his families a copy of the painting if they would like one.

He told Glasgow Live: “If it had been my daughter and someone had done a painting of her I would want to know so I could get a copy.”

With the help of the public, two girls depicted in the painting were found.

Sisters Jane Bluebell, 10, and Rose Summer, 11, were identified by friends and given their own copy of the painting.

Charles said, “The painting was on display in the gallery window to help us find it, but social media soon came back with a response – the gallery and I were delighted to have an extra very personal gift under their tree had this year.

“The girls stood out in the painting, which featured a mix of friends and acquaintances meeting and enjoying a day in the snowy landscape while pulling their sleds through the snow.

“It was good to make sure they got their own copy of the painting.”

What a wonderful Christmas it must have been!
