Suggester says: "The Elderly woman's haunting eyes and smile, and the cold colour pallete, shows that the immense past, memories and emotions that she had experienced are now long forgotten and destroyed, and now she's left with only an aging shell that the world sees."

Large scale oil painting on board, demonstrating the theme 'empty spaces' for my college project.

This piece was painted to portray the emotional emptiness felt through memory loss and disability.

Thankyou to my Gran for agreeing to pose for this painting :)

Very beautiful and very well drawn, if it weren't for the hair and the outer edges of her shirt, I would've sworn it was a photograph. THere is a lot of emotion in her eyes, and you caught it all very well.
