I started the New Year with a list of things I want to achieve in 2017. It’s now the end of January and I’ve only achieved what’s not on the list!
I completed a portrait of a mother with her new born daughter whose strawberry marks give her a beautiful intense look.
Amanda and Eliza
I played with an idea for combining landmarks and native flowers in a painting.
Donkey Orchids – Mundaring Weir WA
I created with yarn and fabric:
Toddlers Pinafore Dress in Progress
Tea Towel Topper
I’d better make a Chinese New Year Resolution to tackle what is on my list!
Yep! True. Still no flora. Even though the rains have started and the land has started to grow and blossom!
All because people come first and a portrait of my daughter in law and her son was overdue!
Mother & Newborn Son
This portrait was designed to go with the earlier one I did of Alex and their son in the shower from a photo when their son was a little older.
It was a design decision to render clothing as minimalist as possible so to focus attention between parent and child as much as possible. Hope it worked!!
