Brother's Commission Piece

Today I thought I'd show you a canvas that I made up specially for my boyfriend's mum for her birthday.  She had been asking me about my canvas work, having seen the ones I had created for my own family and said she would like one.  I love doing personal pieces so if you like what you see then please don't hesitate to get in touch.

I used mainly cotton, with a little silk for the hair and hand and machine embroidery to create the faces and t-shirts.  Although now Ashley doesn't have black hair anymore, (it's back to blonde), and the piercing has gone too, but my Adrian is just the same :)

Here is the original photograph I used, I think I have captured their features quite well.

She was really pleased with it and insisted that a nail was hammered into the wall so she could hang it up :)
