That'll Come In Handy One Day...


I drew this when I was on my holiday, she just seemed to grow whenever I had a few minutes with my drawing pad.
Often these doodles stay in my sketchbook, just half finished ideas or little doodlings.
But this young lady had different ideas.
She had a gleam in her eye and demanded a little bit more attention.
So I added some stars.
She told me that she had to go to a masquerade ball, so I drew her a mask and painted her ball gown to her exact requirements.
And as she was the belle of the ball she had to be framed in something a little bit special.
Then when we came home I remembered that I had just the thing...
a frame I had bought from a charity shop about a year ago.
I think it's from the early 'fifties, but I thought that it was just the right shade of blue.
Madame Fancy Pants thinks so too!

Would you like to make a comment chuck?
I'd love to hear your thoughts, just a minute and I'll put the kettle on.
Custard cream or bourbon?
