Untitled portrait of a woman. Oil on board.

No name, no signature and painted on what appears to be the bottom of a drawer, this is the mystery lady of our house. Another of R's junk shop finds. Whilst it's nice to have portraits of named people that can be researched and known, there is something appealing about the anonymous too. I occasionally catch R staring at her of an evening, obviously wondering who she was and why she had her portrait painted. In our house, she is known as Elspeth!
