What's the Portrait Thing All About?

The news will be out properly tomorrow but here's a glimpse of what I've been doing for a special happening in the Through Our Hands Gallery next summer at Festival of Quilts in Birmingham, UK.

The theme for the TOH exhibition is Portraits. I've been working from a photo on my iPad.....

to make a self portrait using acrylics on a little A5 box canvas.

The exhibition will feature submissions from the affiliated, internationally recognised Through Our Hands artists but Laura and Annabel would like to invite you all to be a part of it too. To discover the hows and the whys please visit the portraitshuffle page and don't be worried if you don't paint, the portrait can be in any medium you choose, whether you love to stitch, appliqué, print or collage your subject. This is your opportunity to be a part of something big! And all profits will go to a really good cause - Save the Children. Can you imagine how wonderful a whole wall of portraits will look? How can you not join in?

Talk again soon - Linda x
