and now for something different !
this light hearted painting was conceived after reading his 2008 book, Frank Skinner On The Road, in which he shared his experiences of going back on the road doing stand-up again after many years in television.
Frank Skinner takes a great interest in 16/17th C. art and particularily that of Diego Rodriguez de Silva y Velazquez 1599-1660. This painting was based on the work of the Franzs Hals 1623 painting, Bafoon with a Lute. There is a change of costume to that of West Bromwitch Albions 2016 home kit. WBA being Franks other life-time love. He recently learned to play the banjo. allegedly very badly.
