Harnessing My Inner Picasso

A few months ago I felt inspired to do a little painting. Here are some small portraits of a few of Jane Austen's characters from her novel, Emma. Each portrait also has a quote about that character. The first is Emma who had "a disposition to think a little too much of herself."

Next is Mr. Knightley, who said, "Men of not want silly wives."

Here is Miss Bates, "a great talker upon little matters."

Here is Jane Fairfax, the portrait I actually sold! Her quote is, "A style of beauty of which elegance was the reigning character." 

Finally here is Mr. Woodhouse, Emma's father who thought, "Where health is at stake, nothing else should be considered."

It was a fun little lark and I was pleased with how they turned out. :)


  1. You are so freaking talented! I love all of them!

    Now, where is this celebration/launch party? hmm?

  2. Lynne! Thanks! The launch party is all week. :)
