Immortalized

I won a competition back in February and my prize was a pet portrait of Gizmo. I was thrilled to receive the portrait last week.  The wonderful Lyn of everydaylife painted this watercolour of him with such painstaking detail.  Thank you so much Lyn.  I now have my naughty ginger muffin (that's my son's nickname for him!) immortalized on paper.  The portrait proudly sits on my mantlepiece next to my woodwose man and green man as a protector of our living space. 

If you haven't met Lyn already then please do go and check out her blog.  Her photography is amazing and visiting is a real treat!

lyn is a wonderful and sensitive artist, she has captured your special boy so well.
i am familiar with the green man (one resides in my garden shed :) but had to look up the woodwose man, very intersting.
