Default my national portrait gallery entry

i'm entering the national gallery's outwin boochever portrait competition again this year, and hope to be as swiftly rejected as i was last time.

i chose the wife for my portrait, and made her look like medusa, and used both egg tempera and encaustic in various parts of the painting. she's very happy with the result.

here's the story and loads of pictures, most of them egg tempera

we haven't a chance in hell of winning, but we think they'll remember the painting.
