* A portrait of my children, once a week, every week in 2013 *

Louis - at the William Scott / Peter Fraser exhibition at Tate St Ives

Xavi - on his way to the Roman villa remains near our home

I like how these two portraits have worked out this week - both boys with their backs to the camera, absorbed in their own thoughts and wonderings. Their independence is growing and they stray farther and farther from us as they find their way in the world.

As ever, I’m joining in with Jodi and everyone else taking part in the weekly portrait series.
