Tea @Three: Painting with Tea…

Good afternoon, Ladies and Gentlemen! Welcome to Max and Collin’s brand new, re-located and  innovatively  Liver Bird – Proof  Parlour, courteously provided for us by our delightfully obliging and inventive Landlord, Montmorency.

Last week we asked our dear Landlord if he wouldn’t mind switching our sack cloth roof to something more stalwart… and so we now find ourselves relocated to what he calls his ‘Subterranean Sepulchre Suit’ conveniently adjacent to his  ‘personal, private pied a terre’ … do you ever have those life moments where you wish you had never asked? … hmm…

Still, here we are, hugely apologetic for not being available at the start of the week as we moved our humble belongings in and arranged our copious amounts of furniture and lace, and now eager (is that the word?) to introduce you to our new room mate, who you may actually (if you are a long standing follower) have met before.

His name is Freddie Payne (a tribute to that great literary criminal John Payne Collier and the famous Punch and Judy puppet maker Fred Tickner) and he is an  anchorite – a devotee of The Divine Comedy – which is why he is chained to the wall, not for any other reason, honestly, he was like that when we moved in…

In this portrait he is painted using tea (lapsang if you were wondering) and a little weak coffee because Penny realised that such things could be done and HAD to have a go. There may be more of us turning up painted in tea at some point… but in the meantime we will return tomorrow with our usual review slot and next week should be back to normal, well, as normal as an octopus and his Very Quiet Gentlemen friend and their religious fanatic roomie can get… a-hem.

Still, until then, please be always

Utterly,  Your Delightful Self
