In February I was lucky enough to make the official portrait of the indomitable Dr Jeanette Linn for the South Australian branch of the Australian Medical Association.
Jeanette at eighty has a sharp intellect and cheeky wit, so the twelve or so sessions spent with her in my studio making this portrait were utterly delightful. I made a wonderful friend and was inspired by her contribution to the community and her achievements.
I am grateful to the AMA for commissioning this portrait, and to Jeanette for her willingness (actually insistence) to make the work entirely from life.
If you happen to be visiting the board room at the AMA in Adelaide – check it out!
