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!
