Spring exhibition



Pin It
Today I went to the opening of the spring exhibition of the Art Society of Waddinxveen.
Lots of nice people and beautiful art.
I was pleased that the mayor really liked the portrait I painted of him.

Just looked back at your March Blog to get a better look at the painting. I think you've flattered him - no wonder he loved the painting :-)

:) I try to portray people I paint how they look on a good day , I've heard Jeremy Lipking does the same. (not that I want to compare myself to Lipking by the way).
Thank you Sue!
