Great Expectations

 I love to read, and I especially love Charles Dickens.   One of my favorite stories of all time is "Great Expectations" and all the imagery the story commands. Given the opportunity, I couldn't resist putting my own touch to the imagery by doing a piece in miniature

"Miss Havisham's house....dismal, and had a great many iron bars to it. Some of the windows had been walled up; of those that remained, all the lower were rustily barred."
"....draped table with guilded looking glass,... a fine lady's dressing table... in an arm chair....sat the strangest lady I had ever seen."
"... dressed in rich materials-satins and lace, and silks all of white... everything which ought to be white  long ago, and had lost it's luster... the bride had withered like the dress and the flowers..."
