My Best Friend

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011

Pencil and Pastel, 2011. Personal creation for my family of myself and my best fur-friend, Jackson. Although Jackson passed away three years ago, he still has a special place in my heart. This is my tribute to him. I have tried to recreate from photo as true as possible, although I have changed colours and posture slightly for effect.

In Loving Memory

Tuesday, October 12th, 2010

Pencil and Pastel 2010. I created this as a special gift for my mother who lost her precious sister recently. This portrait was done for love, not for monetary gain, and I hope that I have captured my lovely Aunt accurately. My Aunt was a gentle and giving soul, who loved her children, her grandchildren, her sister, and her extended family enormously. She will be greatly missed.

Memorial

Sunday, July 11th, 2010

Pencil and Pastel, 2010. I was asked to do a portrait recently of a wonderful lady who had passed away recently. I was approached after a friend had viewed my website, and wondered if I was able to draw people too. I was happy to oblige – although I have a history of creating portraits of our four-legged companions – I have been known to draw a ‘non-fur’ friend in my time. This lady was particularly lovely, and I have done my best to try and recreate her for posterity.
