Tom, you have such a poetic way of putting things! Loved it! Thanks, you've given me my second good laugh of the day. (The first being my first look at the "portrait.")

Chris....thank goodness the Phillip's Medals were put aside at bedtime. Otherwise, I could understand the portrait much better.
(Your comments gave me my third good laugh of the day!)

Thanks to all...I needed that.

I've looked at the portrait for some time and feel a full length nude study would have have been more appropriate with a selection of Royal jewels placed for modesty. A couple of servants could have given her the once over with a warm clothes iron to get rid of the creases.

Egads!!! Perish the notion! Such a sight would be enough to sink a thousand ships!! It would be the intellectual and artistic equlivent of the worst days of the black death, the 1918 flu epidemic and a 49 hour nonstop commercial free stereo digitally enhanced marathon of Lawrence Welk accordian solos. Please, kind Knight, mercy..take the cattle and goods....just spare us Tom

OH God, you guys got to stop. My stomach is starting to hurt! Chris, it hasn't been that long ago that words like that would have gotten you drawn and quartered. All I can say is thank God the artist stopped at the neck line.

Rest easy brave frontiersmen/women none of the royals have ever been seen naked in public. It's not for want of trying its just that the servants didn't show them how to work zips and buttons.

DJ, we've got to stop them! My sides are hurting. "A full length nude"....its too horrid, and...OK, too funny, to even imagine....(thank goodness.)

Tom & Chris, you guys are terrible! You should consider a career in portrait painting.

And, Kathleen, you started all this!

Ah, no, Kathleen, you can't push the blame. You're the one that got this started. In those immortal words... "Ya got some 'splainin' to do!".

What I'm hoping for at this point is the "artist" is commisioned to do the entire royal family. It could become a comedy classic. Can't wait to see Fergie.

Tim

You're welcome.

actually, i kind of liked his self-portrait. methinks he was somewhat kinder to himself than her.

she reminds me of that line from an old movie, "we're fed up and we're not going to take it anymore."
