Gilbert White sits for his portrait
This is Gilbert White, named for the naturalist from Selbourne, England. Gilbert is the founder of the Ambleside Animal Association for the protection of the woods, wolds, moors, meadows, etc. of the Lake District Countryside.
He agreed to pose for me, and all was proceeding quite well, until a great Horned Owl showed up at the cottage to arrange for his sitting. Gilbert dashed out, knocking his mug over in the process. I feel I must make amends, and plan on making him a new mug, as his was cracked.
Portraits soon to be available in my etsy store.
