This artist had some really beautiful paintings. Some are in the background.
Sorry I have been out of touch. We had a huge storm hit the mid Atlantic region on Friday night. About 1 million people without power. Mine just came on yesterday afternoon.

How did you manage for so long without power ? No structural damage I hope. Nice BnW by the way.

@Nigel: It certainly was not fun! All the food in the fridge and freezer had to be thrown out. I spent a good part of one day driving around looking for ice which was a nightmare. Slept downstairs where it was cooler and sat outside with my feet in a bucket of cold water!

I really like that you made it B&W. It focuses on the story in the image. I missed you. Glad your power is back.
