As mentioned in a previous post, my illustrious über woman of a sister has once again called on me, and this time for her portrait. Since she's in the field of education, immediately I wanted to make a picture of "the learned scholar in his den" variety, only this time it'd be "in her den." Holbein's terrific portrait of Erasmus was used as my jumping-off point.
Of course it was only natural I put beakers in the background. What's an important person without beakers? An incomplete important person—that's what I say.
Anyway, we can all hope to one day have such a cute den.
But until then...
