Portrait of Pauline


This portrait was promised by me to my aunt, Pauline, on the occasion of her 90th Birthday party in June 2013, near Tetbury.  From July 2013 she sat beautifully for 2 days under a voluptuous Mulberry tree in her garden. Two wonderful sunny, windy Summer days chatting about family history.  She had some enchanting stories about my father as a young man. The painting took a long time to complete in the studio as I sought to reconcile the portrait with the background.
