I always thought, for no good reason, his looks (like a movie actor) belie his very cute illustrations. Raining here - have a good weekend.

Superb blog!

Could you kindly inform us who is the artist of the painting (on the right side near the Elliot quote) of a vintage car driving towards a house?

It is so stunning!

Many thanks
