Reflection- Virginia Woolf

Title: Reflection-Virginia Woolf
Medium: Oils On Canvas
Size: 16 X 20 Inches




Description: This is a double portrait of the talented and pioneering English writer Virginia Woolf  (25 January 1982- 28 March 1941) Also a member of the Bloomsbury group and younger sister of Vanessa Bell.
  It's been painted in blue to reflect the troubles she had with the bouts of mental illness she endured throughout her life. These days its diagnosed as bipolar disorder but unfortunately there was never a fitting and effective intervention in her life time. In 1941 she sadly wasn't able to carry on any longer and drowned herself in a river at the age of 59.
  I've painted her as a young teenager on the left looking into her future and seeing what is yet to come and the much older version on the right reflecting back on her past and seeing what has past her by.

Lord Bath as the Mad Hatter

Title: Any one for tea?
Medium: Oils on canvas
Size: 50 x 40 cm

Below is a portrait I did of Alexander George Thynn, 7th Marquess of Bath as the Mad Hatter. I was inspired after reading a book on his works of art and I felt the Mad Hatter image suited his eccentric character very well. I have gifted the portrait to Lord Bath and he wrote a thank you note back to me which I have included below.
