Although Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling is known to be quite private when it comes to her personal life, a very limited number of interviews have become available through the years, most of which are in print, on the radio, or on screen. In an article by Daily Mail, we are offered a glimpse into another interview of sorts, though in a different medium.
Pearson Wright, who won the privilege of painting J.K. Rowling’s portrait in 2001 noted “I like the idea that she’s a real person who eats the same food as everyone else, and boiled eggs are very leveling.”
The portrait, which features Rowling “barefoot, eating boiled eggs and soldiers”, began with Wright meeting J.K. Rowling in Edinburgh, sketching, and then “returning for a weekend to paint her at her home.”
Wright won the BP Portrait Award in 2001 as well as a commission to paint the famed author for the National Portrait Gallery.
Pearson Wright also comments:
“And when you get to know her she is very normal, as well as extraordinary because of her imagination. There are three eggs because she has three children and three of her own eggs gave rise to those children.“
IT’S SO CUTE IM REBLOGGING TWICE
Do you want to participate in a present for J.K. Rowling’s birthday? This is your chance.
Jo’s birthday is next July 31st and we want to pay a tribute, a very special gift from all her readers.
The project consists of a photo album full of pictures of Harry Potter and Jo fans who wish to participate, sending me pictures along with a small text. The perfect way for our favourite writer to learn about us and know how much we admire and appreciate her.
The full album with all the pictures will be sent to J.K. Rowling before her birthday so she can read our messages and see our pictures. Are you going to be left out? Everyone can take part and your pictures and texts will be included.
You can dress up for the occasion; take a picture with your favourite Harry Potter book or even The Casual Vacancy. All you have to do is follow these instructions:
- Every picture must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and they will be accepted up to June 15th 2013.
- In the pictures, one person or more must appear along with one book by J.K. Rowling (Harry Potter, The Casual Vacancy, Beedle the Bard…).
- The pictures must have enough quality to be printed. Pictures taken with a normal camera are accepted.
- The text that can appear with your picture (which is optional) must be sent in the same email as the picture, it must not have more than 100 words. It must be in English.
So if you want to participate send me a picture and your message (optional) to email@example.com before June 15th!
