Conservative leadership brain trust determined to stoke the furnace of climate change!
Court Painter trots out a series of Self portraits that always prove to be great stocking stuffers!
Court Painter relutantly accepted a commission to promote the book tour of a struggling little known academic writer however less reluctantly accepted the generous IOU commission fee as solice.
“I remember my few days as a struggling portrait painter way back when… these pictures are homage to that struggle of artists everywhere even though I have no idea what a writer does with all that time on their hands plus they get to sit! Anyway when I took on the commission I thought the title of the book was 12 Rules for Still Life…too late now….it’s too late baby now it’s too late.”
Court Painter is seen on this rare occasion..sitting!
