Portrait


Hmm well this doesnt look any thing like the photo I tried to paint, I really needed to get another painting done but I have been feeling so tired and I have been here there and everywhere this week, as well as rather worried about John who has had a melanoma taken from his back, I can only hope they got it all.
Any way I think everything I had done with Lorraine went sailing out the window today when I did this, nose too big, mouth far too big and at first shadows in the wrong place.
We go to Melbourne on Monday so this may be the last I dofor another week.
I have a textile exhibition of sorts coming up and need to concentrate on that, but of course I cant find something I knew I had put in a safe place. Huh so safe I cant find it!

Sorry to hear about the melanoma! Roger had his removed in Nov. and just got a clean bill of health! Scary stuff! It was on his back too.

Yes, but since we can't see the photograph we're free to enjoy the painting as it is! I like it. Recalls Modigliani.

Nicely painted though!
