    My Great Nan

    I done this picture of my Nan's Mum for my Nan as a surprise gift for Christmas as she only has one pic left of her Mum. and that pic is now badly faded.
    I thought I would share this one with you all too.

    How sad it is, that she only has the one faded picture of herself.
    How wonderful it is, that you are giving her this beautiful painting of herself.
    Very sweet idea and just beautifully done.

    Thank you dear Barn.
    However I should have made it clearer that this is a painting of my Nan's mum. Sorry

    She shows a quite volitive expression! I'd bet she was a great person a much as an iron lady!
    Your thought to make such a gift to Your nan (curiously we call grandmom nonna in Italian, not so different) is a much affectionate and kind one she will utmostly appreciate for sure.
