"The Letter" - My Latest Colonial Portrait

The Letter is for Madam. She never gets letters. They are always for the master.

Good that he's visiting his bank today, so he won't be concerned.

Not that it's any of the maid's business, but it is a shame about the wax seal.

Cook is very good at steaming open envelopes...

I was in the mood for a bit of Colonial portraiture. At first I was going to have the maid carrying sherry, or tea things, on the tray, but suddenly the letter wanted to be there instead.

You've got to go with the muse...
