Portrait Commission

Professor Gordon Parker AO

Professor Parker is one of Australia’s most highly respected Psychiatrists and is the Founder/Director of the black  Dog Institute , associated with the University of NSW,  that conducts research into and treatment of Depression, Bipolar and Mood Disorders.

The portrait was commissioned by the Black Dog Institute through a generous donation by Mr Albert Hunt & family.

My next commission is a retrospective double portrait where one of the pair died 9 years ago so the subjects will be portrayed as they would have appeared 11 years ago.

This a good challenge for a portrait painter and I am looking forward to it but I know it will present quite a few difficulties and will mess with my mind …… I may need to consult Professor Parker before it is finished.
