The bunch of naked folks seem to be having all the fun, Tom...I think I might throw off my clothes and join them!

Tom Wilson: It's always a toss up, Chad smile

It is fun to see that we all have our own saying about this wonderful painting.

fascinating place, Tom. i like the art to be seen. a reclining chair would be nice to do justice looking at this scene.
Tom Wilson: That would do nicely, Ayush!
