Porcelain

This is a porcelain painting done by my aunt.  This is the aunt I took three weeks (in two sessions) of painting lessons with this year.  This is an old piece of work but I love it.

Look at those eyes! That's amazing, Mary. Artistic talent clearly runs in your family!
Mary MacADNski: My aunt doesn't believe it is talent but all learned. That's why I am studying so hard. I believe she is mega talented.

You were a cute child, Mary...and, quite taken with flowers already...
Mary MacADNski: It is not me but my first grade photo is like this - same haircut and look in my eyes.
Your Aunts got some mega talent here smile
Mary MacADNski: She is very talented. This is old work and she's only got better.

Porcelain painting? Does that mean she paints on clay, glaze and bake - or is it paint on porcelain, no further processing?

I think this painting is from one of Genevieve's earlier periods. (Art professor smile)
Mary MacADNski: She mixes pure powdered pigments mixed with oil and yes, it is then fired in her kiln. This is from many years ago. She doesn't paint much anymore but I have her back into it. She gave me lessons twice this year and that urged her back into it.

It certainly has plenty of style Mary
Mary MacADNski: Yes, lots of style.
Your aunt really has talent. The portrait is very sweet. Love the expression!
Mary MacADNski: I think the expression is what I like about this too.
There is something very 1950's about this, the colouring reminds me of children's books of my childhood. It is beautifully done
Mary MacADNski: I feel the 50's here too. Could be the hairstyle?
Lovely painting. Your aunt is very talented Mary. Nice one.
Mary MacADNski: She is talented in many ways.
A wonderful portrait Mary. Your aunt is so talented!
Mary MacADNski: She is very talented in many ways.

I hope that just a small part of your aunt's talents have rubbed off, Mary. Will you let us see your work?
Mary MacADNski: I showed my glass work here. I'll email you, Alan.
Nicely done, it's a very good artpiece !
Mary MacADNski: This was done many years ago. She was very prolific then.
