Merry Meri (Happy am I), 1969

A portrait modelled by a family friend, that my mother says is Mrs Peterson (though her first name wasn’t Meri). My grandmother has really captured the joy in Meri’s face, and uncharacteristically, the background is more of a bright lime green instead of the usual aqua tone.
