*Happy Birthday*

Today would have been my Mum's birthday.
So happy birthday Mummy.
This is the portrait of her that my wonderfully talented husband James did as our
Christmas gift to my dad.
I absolutely love it, it looks just like her.
He is such a talented portrait artist & is in high demand & always has so many commissions to do at any one time.
Some of you many remember he was on the BBC art show Imagine a couple of years ago undertaking a portrait commission.

My Mum loved his work & was always a huge supporter of his, I'm sure she would have loved this portrait too ...
