Joke on Ancestor Paintings

Here we move into the silly stuff. This was something I made (including the frames!) because I have no aristocratic ancestors, and I needed some for the dining-room walls (well, for the room where the dogs eat). So I made them up and as sky was the limit I decked them with flea-market jewelry and dressed them in clothes made out of a flea-market scarf.

Most of this is appliqued with extra ornaments added. Note the gigantic mitten hands of the man and the way his beard looks like an icicle! So not great technically but I had lots of fun making these.
