My fellow inebriates,
I feel nostalgic, and also sad, because the death of ex-Pope Benedict reminded me of this painting.
The painting reminded me of the artist, Dan Lacey, who died of brain cancer 11 months ago.
Dan was very kind to me when I ordered a print from him (not this one but this one). I thought he was an absolute genius and would have hung his paintings on every wall if I were in charge of the art at LBHQ. (My parents have vetoed Benedict.)
