Portrait of the artist wearing his wig and in his pyjamas.


Blimey Mick, I didn’t recognise you there for a minute, I thought it was the portrait of a famous film star! It’s very becoming and an extremely good match, you can hardly see the join...... Love your ‘Jimmy’s’.

You always make me smile and this is no exception … great portrait too!

What a great portrait, and a lovely comment from both Heather and Fiona, which I fully endorse!

What an old rogue you really are Mick (but a lovable one) (-:

You look positively beatific Michael. Love the red, orangey background as it complements the green shirt.

Thank you Fiona, Heather, Thalia, Jim and Carole. It’s a brilliant ‘blend’ Fiona, it was expensive but I’ve notice more women are smiling at me, so it’s been worth it.

Wonderful portrait, Michael.

Terrific painting Michael, and not just the PJs!
