A blue eyed man in a black t-shirt holds a frying pan aloft, as if flipping pancakes. He is surrounded by discs of different colours, so that we can't tell which are the pancakes.

Flying Pancakes

Thread and acrylic on canvas 

Alice (7, Dublin) says: "I've made a portrait of my dad making pancakes. He cooks them always, when I say I'm hungry. And he is actually very good at it. Yummy. It is my second portrait when I combined painting and sewing on canvas. The first one was a year ago when I made my first stitches on a self portrait, when I started to sew. I like to read, especially scientific books."
