Founding Head of Grimsdell

This painting proved quite a challenge - mainly because of the detailed background which included photos, text and graphics. It was important that all these things were included as it was my intention that the whole painting should be a celebration of Pauline Bennett-Mills time at the school. She was, after all, the Founding Head and therefore a hugely important influence on the school. Ms Bennett-Mills herself was helpful and charming - she even saw the humour in and agreed readily to my suggestion that she might 'share' her chair with the little Grimsdell bear!
