GodlyGoddess – Georgina
Oil on canvas 100 x 80 cm
Early in 2002 just prior to leaving WA to settle in New Zealand I spontaneously worked on my own selfportrait along with a commissioned work of my dear sister friend in Georgina. It was in 1996 I was keen to paint Georgina’s sister in Melissa, so I was pleased and honoured for Chris asking me to paint his wife.
It was decided to have Georgina pose amongst this wise 700 plus year old paperbark tree. From here I was able to go deep into the Godly Goddess essence of Georgina.
