Mr and Mrs Hallett by Gainsborough and not, as many people believe, by Andrea Riseborough, Joshua Reynolds, Joshua Lana Del Reynolds, or Burt Reynolds. Isn't this painting just simply the pigmental'd wine of the divine?

Preface:

I wrote the first draft for this a not inconsiderable time ago (though not necessarily in terms of the age of the earth, which is 4 billion years or something). Perhaps it was a year ago. Then I left it, thinking “maybe I’ll send it to some publishers somewhere down the line”. Then I wrote some spiel for it, which is at http://tinyurl.com/8sjpsho and thought “well now I’ve written some spiel for it, maybe I’ll send it to some publishers somewhere down the line.”  Then over Christmas 2012 I rewrote it a bit.  Then I thought “Oh forget it, it’s much quicker just to stick it up as a freely downloadable .pdf at Scribd or something.”  So that’s what I did. It might turn out to be a finished article or it might turn out to be merely a sketch for a longer symphony.  Who knows.  If it does turn out to be a sketch for something longer, say as long as “Miss Macintosh, My Darling” I might have to take Marguerite Young’s advice, and not even bother in the first place.  Happy 2013.
