How Lisa became George…by way of Stephen

So I’m a regular follower of Dave Whatt’s blog and enjoyed his recent post featuring his take on the world’s most famous painting. He suggested it looked rather like Stephen Smith, sometimes presenter on BBC’s Newsnight (although I haven’t seen him recently – I do hope he’s alright) but I felt I saw somebody else.

It took me a while but then it ‘clicked’ I thought of Selwyn Lloyd…(who he you may ask…check him out here). Now Dave has a nifty line in lovely linocuts but I’m hopeless at them – and besides ain’t got the right kit here. However I thought I might give it a try and paint a ‘version’ with Lloyd’s face (anything to avoid getting on with my other projects). So here’s my Selwyn inflected Mona Lisa…but goodness I reckon he’s become George Osborne…remember him uh!
