I've got a wedding present idea for you, Embra.

These ghoulish things

I think it's quite decent, actually - presumably he was playing with the "'til death do us part" idea. Funny story, though - and at least the subject has a sense of humour:

quote:
"I keep reminding myself of my portrait's one big redeeming feature. I am very pleased to note that there isn't a single penis painted on or anywhere near my face. That, at least, is something."
(I should stop posting stories about art in case I end up looking like some sort of philistine...)

I actually like that picture - don't know if I'd want it for a wedding portrait though. [Smile]

I shall baffle you with cabbages and rhinoceroses in the kitchen and incessant quotations from "Now We Are Six" through the mouthpiece of Lord Snooty's giant poisoned electric head. So there!

[lol]

For several years, Mr Embra has promised a portrait to every couple whose wedding we have been to, as a present. He's only got round to doing one though, so maybe the Chapman bros have more availability in their calendars!

I want you to lay down your life, Perkins. We need a futile gesture at this stage. It will raise the whole tone of the war.
