The Colonel has been a bit upset lately. And who can blame him? The gardeners have been pruning the forsythias too closely and the upstairs staff have neglected to dust the globes of the chandelier again. And then there is the squadron of nephews lounging around the estate trying to ingratiate themselves with dear old uncle in the hopes they will be included in the will. "In my day," harrumphed the colonel, "young people had more spunk!"
For this painting I broke out my old acrylics and went back into illustration mode from years gone by. I even found a bottle of Liquitex acrylic medium that was still good after maybe 25 years.
