Portrait of me

My daughter Catherine painted a portrait of me,  inspired by the pic she took when I tried on my sister’s Fairy Party costume. Catherine plonked a wreath on my head and snapped a picture. I love this and it is to hang in my craftroom. It is so happy a picture that I am sure it will put me in the right frame of mind to create.  It measures 1200cm x 95cm, so it isn’t exactly small.
