London Irish

This is a part of a charm bracelet that my auntie left to me.
All the charms were from places that she visited. I wanted to capture it in paint. These charms have a special meaning to me, because my parentage is one from England and one from Ireland. Which makes me a citizen of both countries - and London Irish (that's where I was born). The peacock tells me I should be proud of this heritage.
