playing Snap.

Couldn't resist putting more of the cards on. I used
to play Snap with these when I was a kid. (Giving
my age away now)

This is a silhouette 'taken' in 1830 at the
Hubard Gallery of one John Blake of
Chester. Once badly framed hence the
marking. Unsigned. In these days before
photography you had either a silhouette
or a portrait. Miniatures were popular but
silhouettes affordable.

Happy new year everyone. I'll try and be better at
posting than I have been for the last two months.
Circumstances kept me away. Thought I'd start with
a wee ink and gouache sketch by the late Graham
Murray. It's not a very good photo...done on an
iphone in the gloom of a corridor.
