Oil on Canvas, 20” x 16”
Vicki is my lovely daughter-in-law; wife of my son Owen, and mother of Lila and Bella. Although I have painted her before, in the background of portrait 006, I wanted one of just her. I had wanted to paint her before now, but lacked a suitable photograph.
Then along came a photo of Vicki celebrating the receipt of a free glass of wine. She visited a pub in St Albans named The Victoria. They were doing a promotion – a free glass of wine if your name is Victoria.
Vicki originates from Birmingham. She met Owen at University of Teesside, Middlesborough. They have been together ever since. Vicki has two jobs: International Partnerships Manager at Westminster University, and mother to Lila and Bella. The former job requires her travel abroad occasionally, most recently to China.
Vicki is very knowledgeable about Football, and supports Birmingham City, although I suspect that by now Owen has brain-washed her a little into the wisdom of following Arsenal.
