One of several paintings that owe their origins to the Internet, stumbled on by chance in the course of searching for something else, and seeing an image that took my fancy. With some I made the conscious decision that my painted version should not look like the original, but with this I went the other way, trying to be as accurate as I could; mostly because I loved the colours, which were remarkably difficult to recreate, and the wrinkles, which were even tougher; though not as tough as the ones on the 127-year-old woman.
