Pirate Pox

This piece is a birthday picture for my big sister Rhian (Or Yanna Spanna as she is otherwise known).
When we were in primary school we both caught chicken pox - Spanna was first to catch it. Whilst she was too contagious to go to school, but feeling perfectly fine (if a little spotty), she decided to turn the living room into a pirate themed play area in time for my arrival home from school! She baked pieces of eight and made us a pirate ship from various household items including most of the sheets from the airing cupboard. This new illustration depicts that day..
