A young girl going through that curious stage in life, seeking direction. From fun and romance to education and tradition. A difficult time. An amazing thing happened during the painting of this portrait. In the background the artist could faintly make out a face in the scumbling of oil. He went about with brush bringing it into being with the intentions of removing it. Whilst away, Lisa's mother visited the studio and immediately asked where Peter got the picture of the grandmother. This was later confirmed with a series of photos which absolutely confirm her likeness. It was there to stay.
