quite a few people have a soft spot for young lois because of her enormous hat and serious expression. i suspect this portrait study will go in the boy’s room at winterbourne next to the portrait study of ken which i will be uploading in the next few days. in my studio in worcester i am just putting the finishing touches to some of the larger semi abstract paintings; it is hard to believe that this time next week they will be all hung at winterbourne. can’t wait to see them in the freshly painted contemporary coach house gallery at winterbourne so that i can stand right back and get a take on them all; plus seeing the portraits dotted around the house will put them in a very different sort of context. i have a lot to do before then however!
