I think you did.

I hope you did.

I’d be so pleased if you did.

My latest poortrait was of Dame Edna herself, possums! Reading through your comments, I think you all gathered it was her anyway, but I just had to confirm it!

The photo I used for reference is the one in the middle. The first image is the un-tweaked painting, hardly becoming for a housewife megastar the such of Dame E., so I had to give it a little sparkle…

I shall be painting another poortrait soon… and who knows… it may be watercolour once again… or it may be acrylics on canvas. Canvas! I’m getting bold! Oh me. Oh my…!
