My dad bought me an oval canvas the other day and I immediately wanted to paint a portrait on it! Of course, an ordinary portrait wouldn't do, so I came up with this one of the very dapper Clyde Sylvester Herbet Manchester III. Smiley

Here's the little story I wrote to go with it:

As a gift for his bride-to-be, Clyde Sylvester Herbet Manchester III cancelled his croquet game and had his portrait painted. She insisted. Clyde found it hard to stand still for that long when there so many adventures to be had, but he loved his fiance' more than anything in the world and would do anything she asked.

I like this very much, especially the details of his costume, and his proud posture.  Smiley
