Squiffy


The painting above is a quick oil sketch of one of the characters we met on the Orient Express. He was one of a number of actors on the train adding to atmosphere by telling tales about the train and its history. His name was squiffy an affectionate name for someone who is slightly inebriated.


I actually had a suit like that which I reluctantly threw out about a year ago. To be fair it had served me a lot of years and would probably have come back into fashion eventually. I never had a hat like that though.

We are starting to catch up with our backlog of work now caused by Christmas and a lot of family commitments.
