This is a 30 x 30 cm drawing I did a couple of years ago as one of a pair of commissions from Jenny herself. She is an extraordinary woman in her eighties now, and she wanted something for her family to remember her by. The drawing is from a strongly lit black and white photo of her in her early twenties looking quite pensive and uncertain. I don’t often do portraits but this image was sufficiently odd and engaging and Jenny is such a fun and engaging character that I could not refuse.
