There is good news and bad news about my painting. The good news is that it will be SPECTACULAR! FarmWife showed me the in-progress photos and I dare say no finer portrait has ever been made of man or beast.
The bad news? FarmWife says we must hang it in the living room. It's a pity, as I had picked out a splendid spot on yonder shed wall.
"It will be far too delicate to hang in a barn, my dear," she tells me.
"You ought to improve the barn in order to ready it for my painting, my dear," I tell her.
"Your barn is fine just as it is," she tells me. "Maybe I will buy you a print of it to hang out here."
