This is a portrait of my Mum when she was a 16 year old girl growing up in post war Greece...I was always captivated by the sadness in the eyes in the photograph but also the resilience and the hope that was hidden somewhere..

thank you Enzo for your lovely encouraging comments!  there was a lot of sadness in the photograph that I wanted to capture and I think I have achieved that as there is a strong likeness....I am hoping to introduce some colour in my future work but unfortunately at the moment I have not got the time that is required for painting.
