This painting of her by Lesley Anne Ivory took many weeks to complete and Lesley commented that 'she was both a challenge and a joy to portray'. Blossomire's crown can be seen at the top of the painting; it was inspired by honeysuckle and is set with emerald and jade for her eyes as well as rubies for her warmth.
