Hi Janet! Thanks for your time! I saw your portrait of Bonnie Tyler. Amazing!
I'm so delighted that you see the likeness of Bonnie in her portrait .
Where did you painted Bonnie? At her home in Wales? I bet she was sooo kind and welcomed! Have you ever met Bonnie before or that was your first meeting?
This was my 1st meeting with Bonnie at her amazing home in the Mumbles. She was warm, welcoming and just full of fun. When I think back on the experience I get a surge of joy .... She is a tonic, full of life and and pride in her hard work and achievements .
How long did it take to you to do it?
My preliminary sketches and measurements were done in the house then I developed the painting over a couple of weeks in my studio .
Who had the idea to paint her?
It was my idea to paint her for a series of work to show some amazing Welsh people .
What was her first reaction when you told her you wanted to paint her?
Bonnie was very humble and keen to be part of the Welsh Icons Janet Lance Hughes Exhibition.
Did Bonnie see the portrait yet? Did she like it? What did she say?
I have not yet shown Bonnie the painting but will do very soon and we will let you know her thoughts on the paintaing as soon a possible.
