Cath's House

Recently I had the privilege of painting a portrait of a friend's house. I thought that it should pay homage to her interests and say something about her, and be more than a view of her house.

She collects beautiful tins of different shapes and ages. There are also some fascinating light fittings inside her home which appear in the top of the painting.

Thanks to Cath for giving me this commission, entitled "Cath's House" (and for the permission to include it in this blog).

  1. Absolutely loooove this painting! Very clever to incorporate aspects of Cath's personality and interests. I'm sure Cath is thrilled. Just fabulous!

  2. Thanks so much for your comment, Cheryl! It was great fun to do this picture.
