Lord Fred.

Gothic Arches has moved but the challenges are still the same, this weeks theme is to use the artwork of Sir Frederick Leighton.. (not someone I'm that familiar with) but I do love the Pre-Raphaelite style.........and he was born not far from me. I have no idea why I called her Joan but I thought it suited her!

Fantastic arch and I have to say, I think you chose one of Lord Fred's most beautiful images. The name Joan really does suit her and I love the bit of humour in it.

Everyone's said it before me but your arch and caption....fab

Carmen said...

This is so funny. Reminds me of those black and white birthday cards you get that look so serious and then you read the caption - I rarely buy cards but when I do it's generally those ;) :P

Love this and yep - she's definitely a Joan.
