Macro to Add Default Picture if Picture is not Detected

I want to be able to add a default picture when a macro is run if there is not a picture already present. I have an excel file that asks for an image and positions it within a cell. I have a button that inserts the picture and names it as "ImagePicture". Now, the picture is not mandatory to be added but I would still like to add a default picture of a symbol to serve as a placeholder.

this code checks if a shape called "ImagePicture" already exists, if not, it inserts a default picture and names it "ImagePicture"
Sub InsertDefaultPicture()

Dim ImagePicture As Picture, DefaultPicturePath As String

'Default picture path
'change as appropriate
DefaultPicturePath = "C:\Users\Public\Pictures\DefaultPicture.jpg"

'test if ImagePicture already exists in sheet
On Error Resume Next
    Set ImagePicture = ActiveSheet.Shapes("ImagePicture")
On Error GoTo 0

'if ImagePicture doesn't exist, insert default Picture
If ImagePicture Is Nothing Then
    Set ImagePicture = ActiveSheet.Pictures.Insert(DefaultPicturePath)
    ImagePicture.Name = "ImagePicture"
End If

End Sub
