Nana 10" x 10" Oil

Meet my maternal grandmother, who I miss dreadfully. She lost her husband in WW2 and brought up two children on her own. She was strong and very capable and presented a stern face to the world. She kept her feelings to herself and had an opinion on everything. She has my undying devotion and admiration, for her care of me in some difficult times. She always understood.

I had to get to the studio and slap some paint around, yesterday! Brushes, fingers and kitchen roll came into play here!


If you would like to purchase this painting for 70GBP (unless otherwise stated) please email me.

She looks strong, she is presenting a stern face to the world, so I guess you have caught her admirably.

I agree with Dave. You have presented her as the woman you have described. She has your reddish hair, too!

You captured all her traits in this portrait. I'm sure she would have been very pleased with it. Nice work.

I think she has a lovely face which you saw in her and comes out beautifully in this portrait.

A lovely portrait, softly painted with feeling.
