Yesterday Joyce came up to the studio to sit for me.
First I painted this portrait while she talked about recent experiences in her life teaching abroad. Her joyful and animated spirit comes through here, I really like this painting!
Then made a quick pencil drawing - this actually looks a more like Joyce than the painting.
My paintings and I in the Axis gallery. Actually they are two diptychs, but one pair has been hung with sides touching. They look good on the brick wall!
