Hilary Phillips-Ryley – Windows
|Hilary lives in Mt Nasura with her husband and greatest supporter, Andy.
Always trying to improve on her art, Hilary gave herself the task of practising ‘eyes’ and set out to find some willing subjects. Unbelievably there was no shortage of participants. Family, friends and work colleagues were all eager to have their eye immortalised in a painting, 35 in fact.
This piece captures many walks of life, a variety of expressions and a wide range of ages – from her little grandson who was six months old at the time to a dear friend who had just turned 86. Although a rather mammoth task, a deeply satisfying one!
