Dorchester's Mayor has come face to face with herself.

Stella Jones has been presented with her portrait painted by Dorset artist Paul Matthews.

The surprise came when the Mayor visited Paul's studio as part of Artist At Work 2013.

Artists at Work 2013 showcases the work of professional artists in Dorset, Hampshire and Oxford. The following artists are participating:

Alix Baker, Goodworth Clatford
Mike Hall and Sue Colyer, Tadley
Claire Wiltsher, Lyndhurst
Clare Shepherd, Gussage St Andrew, Blandford
William North, Charlton on Otmoor, Oxford

"I was honoured to receive a visit from the Mayor and thought that she might like a memento that she can cherish and it was a pleasure to see her delight," says Paul.
