Suzi Blu Workshop - Roisin


Well I've finished my 4th painting...she's waxed and polished.

I've called her Roisin; I found out the name is pronounced Ro-sheen when we had a delightful student with that name in the Foundation Unit where I taught.

Its an Irish name meaning Little Rose.

I'm happy with her face now. She looks a bit ghostly in this picture - but in real life her complexion is a warmer colour.

Rosie said...

Yes she DOES have an Irish look - perhaps it's the red hair with all the green? She's fabulous and I hope you're VERY proud of her, because you should be!! Funnily enough one of my daughters calls me "Roisin" ....
