Pastel 16 x 13 inches
I painted this portrait of this very distinguished, regal lady last week in the middle of completing the final few Oils for my Devon exhibition. Normally, painting commissions during exhibition work is impossible, but when I visited Maisie in her home, I was blown away by seeing my paintings on virtually every wall in every room! It was like an entire Peter Barker Retrospective exhibition in one house! I was so humbled that her owners were such avid fans and collectors of some 40-45 of my efforts over the years, that I just had to fit Maisie in to my schedule somehow for her master's 50th birthday.
Her mistress kindly granted permission for her inclusion on my Blog, saying that Maisie is a real tart and craves attention and would love to 'go viral', so here she is, launched on to the internet!
