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.
