"There is nothing so bad as parting with one's friends.
One seems so forlorn without them."
....Mrs. Bennet pines over the departure of her newly married daughter Lydia, in Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice"
This digitally painted portrait of Mrs. Bennet was designed especially for my cat adaptation of P&P, with the lovely Miss Pumpkin modeling, as she was the winner of the cat casting call on my Facebook fanpage.
I'd like to thank the following stock photo providers for a few textures I used:
for his Persian rug, Juuichimei
for the sofa fabric, and Paintresseye
for her bold orange floral pattern (that I redesigned into a purple dress).
I print all my artwork at home in my studio, using a professional Epson giclee printer which uses water and fade resistant Ultrachrome pigment inks, for an archival reproduction that will last 90+ years.
Each print is hand-signed on the back by me, the artist, and dated with the original creation date.
I trim each print myself, leaving a small white border for easy framing.
(And watermarks you may see are solely for internet display, and are NOT featured on the actual prints)
Prints are shipped safely packaged in acid-free cellophane sleeves, with additional cardboard backing inside the mailer.
