Why my friends asked me to produce work in this period, I have no clue. I look back at pages done years ago and can see only the flaws.
Based upon folio 124r of the Manesse Codex depicting Walther von der Vogelweide sitting in a pose described in one of his most famous songs, I adapted this page for Elena's County. I used a more feminine border from another page of the Codex Manesse and left out the helm and scroll depicted in the original.
One personal addition, a tiny purple goblet, was inserted at the bottom of the frame as a bit of fun-poking at my dear friend Elena.
I do have to say it is very odd looking with fresh eyes at a project done so long ago.
