I have decided to put myself in the pictures, this is just to show the size of these paintings as it is difficult to tell with just measurements sometimes. I have so pleased with how these are looking now. The frames are gorgeous, contemporary but with some detail in them. Both paintings match as they are in the same frame but opposite in colour. Another thing that has happened is that the framer has varnished these for me, mainly because I am useless at it. He sprays them
This is me, I am not very photogenic it's true, that's why it is a very rare photograph. I love this image and that's why I have painted it. The lady's name is Louise Brookes and she is from a bygone age. This portrait is much larger than the usual ones I do and it is the same size as the other portraits shown below, so that gives you an idea of the scale of them. This lady is wearing a string of pearls and they were a complete nightmare to do, I set in the same position (that's an age thing).
I am thinking of doing some prints of these, what do you think, would anyone want them? That's what worries me really but my husband is pushing that one along. I might yet be spotted pushing them on street corners yet, should be fun.
