FEMME DE BOOMER, Kerry
Acrylic on Linen
26 cm high x 26 cm wide
I wanted the image of Kerry to be soft to capture her kind and caring nature. Working in monochrome using just four greys has allowed the portrait to have a feeling of agelessness. Likewise reducing the canvas size has removed all fine facial details, leaving an idolised image for the viewer to embrace.
A warm and comforting image of Kerry, as the generous and
loving grandmother that she is, with a heart big enough to be everybody’s grandmother.
