In the article, Sir Paul credits his art with helping him with get over the deaths of both Linda and John. He says, ''There is a lot of sadness in my life. My mother died when I was 14. Three years on, I was up and running in the Beatles. I was actually one of my great bonds with John (Lennon), because his mum died." Of Linda, he shares, ''I did a lot of portraits, none of which capture her but all of which capture a certain essence. We often used to sit late at night, and I would paint her. Thirty years is a lot to get over. She was a very powerful person in a very quiet way. In the article, Sir Paul reveals that he ahs painted portraits of John Lennen even though he had to struggle to remember what he looked like, ''Then I'd think, 'Of course you know. You wrote all those songs facing each other'."
