This is Andrew.
He's collected paintings for years.
The painting behind him is Ben Hartley's 'Mrs Ali Baba's Whist Drive Hat' which he bought over thirty years ago.
Lynne is not sure about the drips.
"Not sure" is not exactly what she actually said, but, in case children ever read this blog, I've had to use a euphemism.
It's another example of a painting from a photograph, and it will go on show in my forthcoming exhibition - whenever that turns out to be.
P.S. After much badgering, I've now removed some of the drips. But not all of them, because I feel they symbolise the importance of chance - and the controlling of chance - in a painting.
