‘Girl with cradle and toys’ by Rossina Bossio

I am over the moon to be the model in Rossina Bossio’s latest painting ‘Girl with cradle and toys’ (Acrylic on canvas, 73 x 60 cm).

I posed for Rossina last June when we met in Paris, see this blog post to see the photographic collaborations we did.

Whilst preparing to shoot, Rossina asked me to think of my favourite female (cartoon or likewise) character from childhood. Funnily enough I couldn’t think of one. The only thing that came into my head was Mickey Mouse. I thought maybe that because the male figures are usually given the exciting, active roles, that there was just no ‘female’ children’s character to empathise with?

Rossina has just recently had time to finish the painting and I am very pleased to see the results. I hope I can see it for real one day soon!

The painting will be at Rossina’s next exhibition in Rennes. Check out Rossina’s blog to find out more HERE.

Thank you Rossina!

      This is quite wonderful. Must be fantastic for you. “I hope I can see it for real one day soon”. Something I say to myself about your work all the time. :)

      And thank you Rossina for such a nice painting. I find your work very captivating.

      This is really brilliant. My bloody goodness what great works. Rossina has some serious talent when it comes to oil painting. I can’t put into words of how good she is and how hard it is to do that.

      The details in the face and hair are incredibly vivid and look so realistic. The only thing that I have to question ( I can’t believe I’m saying that … “question”) is the left shoulder and arm appears to be not proportionate to the rest of your body figure. I don’t see any reason why you would want to go abstract on that when everything else has a realistic tone and quality to it.
