Thanks to our fellow researcher Mike Wilson and his associate, artist Sue Hourigan, we are now able to see our forebear Margaret Wilson nee Williamson, so much clearer than ever before.
Mike and Sue put their heads together and closely studied the two images we have of Margaret (further below), one believed to have been painted by her husband William when she was mid forties, and the other a photograph taken much later when she was in her 70s. William’s water colour painting is unfortunately not as distinct today as it probably was originally.
However Mike and Sue’s work has allowed an excellent and distinctive facial structure interpretation to be made of how she looked when in her mid 40s. With their approval we are now able to present the results – a wonderful interpretation which we think you will agree captures her just the way she was. Site visitors will note the creative composition of the new image, which features as a wall hanging the Mt Nassau home where Margaret together with son Frederick and his wife Jane lived and farmed.
Mike has scanned the painting in high resolution suitable for high quality print reproduction – it is now available for members of the family who would like to print a copy. Family members may email Mike direct – alternatively via this site’s email address.
Well done Mike and Sue.
