My Rock

My Rock

8x11 inches

Coloured pencils, Pastels pencils, Conte pencils & Pan Pastels on wood.


This is the woman who is my rock, my best friend, who first introduced me to art via her own creativity, and who has taught me more about life and love with more wisdom than anyone I know - My Mum ox

Thank you Dors - we are very close, although sadly not in distance. Mum lives in Brisbane and we live in Sydney, but long chats on the phone help!!! :)

She is beautiful Karen, and so is Ben. I really enjoy seeing the character of the wood in this one.

It's also playing tricks on my mind - the softness of your mum's skin overlaid on the hard timber.

Well actually Cindy - this one was the marine ply (thank you for the hint about Bunnings), which probably has a bit too much texture for me, but might be great for larger works - still experimenting :)

Beautiful work Karen! You've done a beautiful job on the skin tones. Too bad you're not closer in distance. I too am far away from my Mom and Dad.

It's so hard isn't it Barbara. Dad passed away three years ago and I would love to spend more time with Mum, but she says she couldn't live in Sydney - too busy for her :( which I do understand.
