In my latest practice at portraiture, I thought I would try to paint my sister-in-law. She won’t thank me for the end result; something of a caricature and an image that is probably of a version of her twenty years older than she actually is!  That said, I rather like the end result because, for me, it captures her sense of fun.  Anyway, it’s in the eye of the beholder so we… Read More

As most people who know about me are aware, I have Parkinson’s Disease. This is managed by medication and so I am able to continue working.
