Favourite Picture

For your delectation I would like to show you one of my all-time favourite pictures, a huge copy of which I have framed and hanging in my bedroom :-)
It is called "The First-born" by Frederick Elwell, and the original is at the Ferens Art Gallery in Hull.
This is the best image I can find on the Web, but it doesn`t even begin to do it justice. The father in the picture has a posy of cowslips to give to his wife .........ahhhh.
One day, I will get to see it "close-up and personal", LOL.

That is very have excellent taste!

Of course the downside of seeing it close-up is that you will have to go to Hull, which is best seen on a map.

I love it! How beautiful.

Wow, that is stunning! And the reality is, no matter how many children you have, you only have one firstborn. It certainly captures the magic!
