  1. Elspeth.
    What a wonderful legacy you have, not only a painting of your ancestor but one by Sir Joshua Reynolds! I am sure many of us will envy you on both counts but we will also be extremely happy for you. I know it is a legacy that will go on forever.
    Regards,

    Thank you for sharing your painting with us! Does anyone know if there is a gallery anywhere with all of Sir Joshua Reynolds paintings? I have ancestors that were painted by him and would love to find those paintings!
