Honorary mention for 'Mansfield Park' my favourite Jane Austen yet. The heroine, Fanny goes to live with dreadful relatives (Mrs Norris, we all know one of you!) Great characters, romance and soap-y plot twists kept me glued throughout the many, many chapters. It sustained me through the long, jet lagged suffering of our journey back from Chicago. I loved it so much I kept having to update Alistair continually on the characters doings, although he had no clue what I was on about!

It was so large, the checkout lady exclaimed over it and showed it to other people in the queue. I thought I'd better paint it before I had to eat it.
I also found an unfeasibly huge aubergine, hence Day of Giant Vegetables was born.
Quite pleased with the highlight effect on this.
