Having shown you the cake I made for my sister's birthday last time I felt I had to tell you about the present I gave her too....a painting by Claire Barone
I found Claire on Folksy, loved her stuff so contacted her about commissioning a painting of Julia with our dogs Molly and William (who are sadly no longer with us), Claire said yes, I emailed some photos and then she went to work and made this amazingly fantastic painting!
This shot is just before Julia started crying (with happiness I hope!)
The painting and the lady herself.
Thank you again Claire for making such a fantastic gift, it was the talk of the party! x
