So after over a month long hiatus from painting due to a visit to Ireland and pure laziness, I got back into the swing and have done a portrait of one of my best mates Annica. The painting is based on probably the best photo I have of her, as she has a tendency to pull faces when the camera is out. I got lucky and got striking portrait of her. She has got amazing eyes and the longest eyelashes of anyone I know. It’s called Little ‘Sister’ as she is one of my closest female friends here in Sweden and anywhere in the world and I love her as a sister. We fight as bad siblings do, which I must add.
I am working towards an exhibition of my paintings in January and to balance up the genders I added this. I think the break did me a world of good as I am pretty proud of this one in particular.
