    Just thought I'd update this thread to say that this portrait was selected to hang in the Royal Society of Portrait Painters' annual open exhibition this year (it was rejected by the RSA), which I'm pretty ecstatic about, given that I've never publicly exhibited work before.

    Well done - it's a lovely picture.


    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.
