This painting is the view opposite the one with the mirror in it. I did it partly because I thought it would be cute to do the view opposite and partly because I badly wanted to draw the amaryllis that was just too gorgeous. It was a big bonus that my daughter was "persuaded" by my husband to do a little violin practice. They were engrossed in the "persuasion techniques" (much cajoling etc.) and didn't notice my putting her in, or she would have been annoyed...Luckily she became quite immersed in the music (we knew she would if she gave it a chance) and she was pretty serene after a while.
