Portrait of the artist's mother

Meet my sweet little Mum! On Saturday I painted her portrait in the middle of my exhibition in the Barn gallery at Patchings art centre. We had such a lovely day and so many friends came to watch the painting take shape. It was a lovely atmosphere, thanks to everyone who came and to the brilliant team at Patchings as always. We had a really great day.
Although I've sketched her over the years I think the last painting I did of my mum was the one below, painted when I was still a student 22 years ago!
I am really enjoying the quick portraits that I've been able to do this year, I hope to get some more done this winter so let me know if you'd be interested in sitting for me.


  1. Bonjour chère amie,

    Ce portrait est impressionnant ! Votre maman doit en être fière !...
    L'amour et le talent réunis donnent d'excellents résultats.

    Gros bisous ☼

  2. What a lovely painting. You are as awesome at the portrait as you are at the landscape. Love the one you did at art school too.
    You are correct , Haidee-Jo - your mum IS tiny...loved the box for her feet.

  3. I really liked this. I like that it's not over-finished, but what really stands out is that I would have thought that was your mum even if you hadn't said. It's almost a self-portrait as well.

  4. This is lovely, they both are. What a lovely experience for both mother and daughter , enjoy these special moments x

  5. This is a great portrait. It has love and gentleness in it. Very special indeed.

  6. Lovely work and journey


Thank you for your words!
