Chrystia Freeland's portrait for Rhodes House, Oxford, UK

Last fall I received a commission from the RP (Royal Society of Portrait Painters) in the UK: a portrait of Canada's Minister of Foreign Affairs, Chrystia Freeland, for Rhodes House in Oxford. The portrait is now hanging above the Head Table in Milner Hall, alongside Nelson Mandela, Cecil Rhodes, and the Second Century founders. I am delighted and honoured to share these photos of the painting as I photographed it, and as it now looks in its frame at Rhodes House.

Review of Sinopia products

I was invited by Jackson's in the UK to review two products, Sinopia Chalk Ground and Sinopia Casein Ground, for use with egg tempera. You can read my review here.



(Spoiler: I loved both of them.)
