That Rubens certainly could throw paint at canvas!
Tom Wilson: He knew what he was about, Ray!
Happy new year, Tom.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Frank.

What a beautiful, attractive lady in al her glory! Happy new year to you, too, Prof. Wilson!
Tom Wilson: She looks like a "sparky" lady!
That is quite an age gap!

Happy new year to you too
Tom Wilson: Indeed it is, Bill - he only lived another ten years after his second marriage and I think they had five children in that time - the last being born after his death.

Ye gods - that stare, that cleavage!

Happy new year Tom

A lovely cultural start for the new year, Tom. Just what we need.
Tom Wilson: Hold on to your hat - it's probably not going to get any better!
A very fine portrait once again, but 37 years age difference, that's some gap isn't it.
Tom Wilson: It certainly is, Brian - however it didn't stop them having five or six children smile
My grandparents had a 22 year gap and I thought that was a lot!

Happy New Year, Tom.
Tom Wilson: This does seem a lot, but she seems to have been happy enough! What's the gap of Robert Maxwell and Jerry Hall? Now there's a lady who needs her head examined!
I love her expression!
Happy New Year!
Tom Wilson: As I said to Chris - she looks a feisty lady!
