I spent quite a bit of time looking for the perfect picture, I even visited the Battersea Affordable Art Fair (newsflash, it isn't) but in the end I spotted this little watercolour and ink picture in the O3 Gallery in Oxford and I knew it was exactly what I wanted.
I don't know very much about the artist, her name is Flora McLachlan and she studied at Oxford, but I just love her magical style. I waited very impatiently for her exhibition to be over so I could finally get my picture home, and it is now happily sitting in my room and I love it just as much as I first did when I saw it in the gallery.
Have you purchased or received something that means a lot to you? I'd love to hear the story behind it.
