How did I not know of this creative genius before? Well, apart from not being awash in multiple millions… I have watched this painting for the past several weeks truly enraptured. Of course, thanks to the schadenfreude that was Evan Solomon’s demise – goodness, if you sneezed, it’s very likely that you would have missed it – I have finally found Peter Doig.
Of course, I don’t look at TV so his departure from CBC would have been more readily noticed. Moral of the story: do not ever try extorting money from the rich… and a lawyer to boot – Bruce Bailey. Goodness, what could he possibly have been thinking? The greedy twat… adieu! Goodness, I have not laughed so hard in long ages.
As Sunday is my birthday, I am going to be shaking tail feathers – it’s also Caribana or whatever it is now called – and being feted over the next couple of nights. Happy summer, sweet dreams and my but I love this Peter Doig painting.
