For Moira

Originally I intended to frame this before I sent it, but after some consideration I thought the recipient might like to decide how it was displayed for herself. I did not trim the paper down to image size, and unfortunately this picture is horrible, making the colors look rather washed out.

The top right corner is an encoded portrait based on an old picture of her from when she was a teenager. The collection of pink lines overlaying most of the bottom half is based on one of her ukiyo-e -style paintings. There is more to it but I have to go to break now.
