30cmx25cm. Hardboard

The Queen and her family pass through our village every year, attending Royal Ascot Races.

This picture is the best I could do to represent the scene we Villagers enjoy, the Royal Family close up and personal.
This pic is in the post as we speak, to a best friend and huge Royal fan of ours who who lives in Cathcart, Eastern Cape, hoping this will convince her to pack a bag and come and see the Queen of England up close from Watersplash Lane.

What a charming painting!

Ah, but I must share this, as my hubbie's voice (born in England) is ringing in my ears ~ he often says that Elizabeth is "Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. England has not had a king or queen since 1707." Trivia buffs: The last monarch of England was Queen Anne. And interestingly enough, Elizabeth is Queen of Canada, just not Queen of England. huh, go figure.:wave:

Must be lovely where you live (I have been, many years ago, to Windsor) cheers!

That's cute Dave.

I watched The Crown on Netflix. Very interesting. She was always just "the queen" but watching it made her more of a real person to me.

As a child we sang God Save the Queen at the end of the day. Not sure why we stopped.

lol Queen of England just has a nicer ring to it.

It's a charming painting.

She may not be technically the Queen of England, but it has a nice ring to it.

We used to sing God Save the Queen in school too.

Just watched the film "Maudie" about the Nova Scotian painter Maud Lewis. I think a style a little similar to your work, Dave. Cheers!

Hey Colin - way to up your post count :angel: four duplicates! Yep, and her official title would be a mouthful for sure.

What a fun and exuberant painting! Yes, I love our Queen who has many titles and names. I wrote to her for the first time on her 90th birthday and received a wonderful photo and reply. I envy where you live as you can see her so frequently Dave. I love her Ascot outfits, especially the hats, and her excitement at the races. Prince Philip is the perfect partner for her. This painting says so much.:)

I remember when I posted it wasn't going through so I kept hitting "post reply" then I got a server error. Haha. Will delete the surplus.

Her style is totally her own. All very captivating.

Thanks for introducing me to her art.
