My first entry in the Blake Art Prize and I am so grateful to have been able to include this portrait of Naomi and her beautiful boy, Gabriel.  I have titled the painting “In the detail…” as for me that is where I find the creative spirit.   Will now await the announcement of selections, however to have entered and to have had the privilege to paint this painting is significant to me in my journey as an artist, in particular as a portrait artist.
