Map of Persuasion

On this artistic rendition of a map you can see all the places mentioned in the book - real and fictional. Lyme, Bath, Kellynch, Uppercross, Winthrop, Shropshire. Inside the map I penciled in Captain Wentworth's letter to Anne. There are also miniatures of Anne and Captain Wentworth and a full rigged ship in the lower right corner. To add to the nautical feel of the painting I added a compass on the top along with swirls of evergreens for eternal constancy and tiny forget-me-not flowers. Of course I am no cartographer and if you are a person good with maps, or living in Britain you will probably laugh. But I thought it would make a fun Persuasion keepsake :)

Reading in the Garden

This is how I imagine Catherine on a sunny day at home, stealing away to the garden to read a book.

Among the Hills

This was a custom painting that didn't turn out just the the way it was supposed to, so it's still available.
