Portrait of Katherine, a dear and sweet Irish Lady.

I really enjoyed doing this portrait – trying to capture Katherine’s sweet smile and gentle face.

… A face full of joy and pain and the many memories of a lifetime.

    Hi Avril

    This painting is of my grandmother Katherine Delaney. The painting is fantastic and captures her beauty, style and elegance brillantly. Nana was born in Co Laois in 1916 but lived most of her life in Miletree, Birr, Co Offaly. We are looking forward to showing her your work.



  • Thank you so much for your wonderful comment, Paul. I hope you Nana is well and that you will tell her just how much I enjoyed doing her portrait. I imagined her just as you describe – beauty, elegance, style and so much dignity! Let me know what she says, please!

    – Avril Brand

    Hello Dear Avril…… this is a “Master piece”!! You are wonderfully GOOD!! Great in my mind! It seems like such a privilege to have a painting done of “yourself”… As if you are royalty.. but then, what an outstanding remembrance! I know they are blessed by this….. as I am blessed by you!! XX
