Artist's Description

Pastel on sanded Colourfix paper (burgundy) – 70cm x 50cm (1694 views on 21/4/11)

ABSOLUTELY DELIGHTED that this portrait was included here 50 Inspirational Examples of Portrait Art – by RedBubble

Con Conning was the first member of the Seymour & District Art Society to be made a Life Member. Originally from New Zealand, Con is a superlative artist painting mainly in watercolour. He is a much loved and valued member of the Art Society and the community in general.

I painted this portrait as a tribute to Con for the Art Society 21st Birthday celebrations held last November. It is currently on display at the Old Courthouse Gallery, Seymour, in an exhibition called ‘About Face’ and when that finishes I will make a gift of this painting to Con and his family.
(Con passed away on 19th April 2011)
