Maureen. by rorsdors Maureen. by rorsdors
This is a portrait of my other half’s mum, There is no photos of her anywhere looking at the camera, there are a lot of photos of her threatening people who were trying to take her photo. But I did notice in one group photo in the background Maureen was looking at camera smiling!! Trouble is she was way in the background so I had no detail to work with and after much frustration gave up and went with the blur.
Oil on canvas about 19 inches by 16.

This is almost impressionist work, really nice effect! From the thumb I thought it was a photo.
Hehe, I recognize the not-wanting-to-pose-in-front-of-the-camera thing..

I'm just as bad about being photographed, I think I look one way see a photo and realise I looked rather different.

Impressionistic! She had a great smile, she should have allowed more photos of herself. This is great, Rory!

She's in a home now and I think about her, she was a character in her day, the idea that you didn't say everything that popped into your head wasn't something she believed in.

She looks like she had a great sense of humor, bless her heart.

A great sense of humour and a lethal tongue!

The blur technique is quite interesting, could call it impressionism. Love it, its intriquing. :iconloveitplz:
