Wearing My Black Velvet Hat

I sat on the sofa steaming with two wheat packs watching a DVD of "Pride and Prejudice" and drawing. Helen from my painting group had taken a photo of me when I least expected it at our Art Deco lunch on Waitangi Day. I begged her to delete it but she went and had it printed and gave me a copy. However I decided to see if I could draw a good likeness of myself and unfortunately I succeeded despite my best attempts to make myself resemble Keira Knightley. Damn those portraiture classes!

I love the hat too. It used to be my grandmother's but I "adapted" the brim to make it look a bit more trendy.
