“Ram” is an original oil painting of a Ram, Renée’s son. Renée painted both my brother Ram and I when we were much younger. Both were painted from photos and with similar colours and style. They now hand proudly at Tourné, Ram’s retreat and home. Renée was absolutely amazing at giving the likeness when painting a portrait. I always remember when Renée met someone whose beauty and appearance struck her, she would say “Oh how lovely, oh how beautiful, I would like to paint you”. May that was how she got so many commissions?! What was also awesome, was that no person ever sat live for her. She painted all her portraits from photos. She almost always painted portraits in oils. Oils was her preferred medium. As is mine! Go Mama!
