Aunty Dorothy

Aunty Dorothy

Oils on board, unframed

My first commission came from my cousin who, impressed with the portrait I did of my Dad, requested one of her mother (my Dad’s sister).

A difficult challenge, as I wanted to reflect my memories of her as a very warm and dignified lady (my Uncle was an elected town Mayor which meant my Aunty was in the public eye a lot as Mayoress).

But I also wanted to paint a true likeness for her family, that captured for them, memories of a loving mother and grandmother.

Fortunately, both the family and I were happy with the end result, with none of these key elements being compromised.

“Hi Fran, I’m absolutely thrilled with the portrait of Mum! The likeness and the way you have captured her personality is amazing; it brings back such happy memories each time I look at it. Thank you so much!” – Priscilla (Jun 2019)
