Thank you everyone for your kind comments. I made it for my friend Chris. Her Aunt passed away a couple of weeks ago. The picture was taken a couple of weeks before she passed while Chris was there helping her. She was receiving hospice care in her home and Chris was there with her for the last few weeks. She faced her death with humor and good spirits and is an inspiration to us all. Chris says this picture captures her spirit perfectly.

The soft pastels add so much mood to this tranquil scene.  Lovely way to honor your friend's aunt.

This is a delight in itself, but along with it's significance more special Anne.
