Rules Rule!

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!

Progressive Conservative Leader Blaine Higgs was hired by Irving Oil a week after he graduated from the University of New Brunswick. His resume includes 33 years as a senior executive working for one of Canada’s richest families: the Irving clan.

The company is one of New Brunswick’s largest employers, with interests in forestry, pulp and paper, transportation, oil refining and distribution, retail, media outlets and shipbuilding. Canadian Business magazine says the privately owned empire was thought to be worth $7.8 billion, making the Irving family the eighth richest in Canada.
