Adams Portrait Awards

My latest piece, 'Pickle', is a painting of my daughter Mia. It will be entered for selection at the Adams Portrait Award at the New Zealand Portrait Gallery in Wellington. I have wanted to paint Mia for so long and this was the perfect excuse. It was very rewarding painting her and I also found it quite emotional, but thoroughly enjoyable, trying to capture all of her character which I know and love, and paint it on canvas. I am really happy with the result and it makes me realise how lucky I am to have such a lovely 'Pickle'.

The exhibition will be held at Shed 11, Wellington, from 24th February until 11 April 2010.
