Oil on canvas

cm: 40 x 50

inches: 16 x 20

A Rabbi painting to be displayed in a preschool in North Sydney

“What’s not to love about this portrait of Rabbi Jonathan Sacks?” asks Zizi. “I commissioned Xinh to paint this portrait for me because I admire the gentle and intelligent teaching in his books and youtube videos. His personality just sparkles in this portrait. The image is a composite of 3 different photographs.” Zizi is over the moon with the portrait. She is very impressed with the brushwork in the hair and beard. How does Xinh achieve such painterly success? Hmm…

When Zizi opens her preschool, the portrait of Jonathan Sacks will hang in the entrance gallery with other great thinkers and doers, such as Confucius, Mum Shirl, Eddie Mabo, Li Cunxin, Dr Candace Pert and David Gulpilil.
