Sixty years ago Whitefish artist James Bakke sent a drawing of Queen Elizabeth to Buckingham Palace, only to have the artwork returned with a gracious note saying Her Majesty couldn’t accept the gift.

Bakke nevertheless continued his lifelong fascination with England’s royal family and visited London twice, the last time for Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s wedding in 1981. He’s painted numerous portraits of Queen Elizabeth, following her reign closely for six decades.
