Here is a Tadema interpretation from one of our regulars......

Natalie Elphinstone - Hugh's 60th

This is what Natalie said.......I've scrapped a LO of my mother and father-in-law at his recent birthday party. I took inspiration directly from the painting to create my background (notice the horses?!) and the flowers up the side. I wanted to create a lot of texture and dimension in this LO as I plan to frame it in a shadow-box and give it to them as a thank-you gift for everything they do for us. Oh, and my mother-in-law is part Greek, so she's my 'Greek woman!'

Hi Natalie! What a fantastic take on the challenge love the background with the horses, love all your embellishments from the old fashioned gas light to your picket fence and little owl. It will be a beautiful treasured gift... thats for sure! Cheers Shazza
