Jane Austen Tour Blog Contest

Here is my entry for the contest. Just in time! I wasn't planning to enter at first, but I had fun painting this today with watercolors. It shows up a little grainier than in real life, as I had to take a photograph of it. Click for larger image.
And here's a shot of the painting as it was in progress, and the two pictures I based it on:

Very beautiful work, as always, Missy! How long did you take to complete this painting? (If you don't mind my being curious... =)

I hope you are having a wonderful week!

Love in Christ,

Thanks, Lacie!

I worked on it a good part of the day, but I'm not sure how many hours. Maybe 4?

Yes, I'm having a great week--we have company from FL. :) Hope you're having a lovely week, too!
