Fab idea very well executed . Is your middle name Patience by any chance!

Lovely idea, well executed. I thought of doing someone similar with passport photos over the years.


Great - good to have, instead of photos.

Gosh, I love all the different poses.

I love this, it must have taken you forever, but it was well worth it!

Thank you Helen!!

Thank you Maureen, I was standing at a bus stop one day and thought I’d have a go at the proverbial ‘selfie’ These little pastel paintings are a results of trying to find a picture I like with a flattering angle etc etc! So these are, if you like, the reject shots, as I’m not even smiling in any of them!! I thought it would make for an interesting painting!!

Thank you Dawn - it was fun to do!!

Hi Jacky and thank you yes it did take a few weeks to complete!!

Total admiration, skill , aptitude and patience in bucket loads.

Thank you so much Andre!!
