I've actually been working on this ever since I heard the news for the first time. I've been a bit of a perfectionist with it. I'm sure to most of you it will look the same as the rest of my work, but there were challenges for me in making her look just the way she should. A happy, grand ol' girl. Our Mary. I used autumn colours in the background. Most of the pictures I've seen of Mary were on hikes in autumn with bright colours, and that's what I thought of when I drew her. smkie, a gift to you, Hyia and your family. I wish I could afford to send you a nice canvas of it as well. Give me an email address and I'll happily send you a high-quality copy for you to keep.
