Framed Portrait

As promised in my last post here is the finished portrait as it returned from the framer's.

Geoff has been a stalwart of Durham County Cricket Club for many years, adopting a variety of roles. Last season, in spite of a mid season heart attack, Geoff coached the club to their third County Championship. I couldn't resist including the trophy in the picture.

I like it a lot! It has a nice, uncomplicated, cleanly done look to it. I'm glad Geoff liked it too. How brilliant you are to have approached a stranger. You give me courage.

Well done, lovely portrait.

Linda - Thanks. It was quite daunting for two reasons, one I didn't know Geoff before hand and the whole size isa ue was one that I'd not confronted either. There's lots I could improve/change but Geoff's approval means a lot.

Caroline - So leased that you like it. Not my usual subject matter but there's nothing like seeking new challenges.
