“Phillipa” (1) is an original commissioned oil painting of a friend’s daughter. Beautiful! Renée loved beauty, gardens and hats! She was never without any of these. Renée was absolutely amazing at giving the likeness when painting a portrait. What was also awesome, was that no person every 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!
