Painting Taken Into Hospital

My portrait of Peter Mount CBE, the Chairman of Central Manchester Universities Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, has been installed in Manchester Royal Infirmary for the world to see! It is a painting that shows Peter standing among the pillars at the entrance to the Children’s Hospital, surveying the new hospital complex that  he has overseen the building of. His glasses contain a reflection of the old hospital buildings. He is a lovely man and was a pleasure to meet and paint.

You can read about Culture Shots, the week long event that saw Manchester’s cultural institutions in residence in the Central Manchester Hospitals, that led to this portrait here.
