And it only took me 3 1/2 years!

I painted the background of this canvas 3 1/2 years ago, but I didn't like the way the subject was progressing, so I propped it on the mantle to ponder. It has sat there and mocked me ever since. Then, just before Christmas, I was doodling and colouring with the Princess and we made a big picture together that I loved. I laid it on top of the canvas and the juxtaposition of the two really struck me. Inspiration! At last! The result (and sorry for the crappy photography, I need a new camera!):

I love it! It's especially nice that doing something with your girl helped it to get finished. It'll be a nice story for her to remember.
