The grand unveiling

I have already done a post on the unveiling of my portrait last week.  Here is a shot of the actual event, just after the Lord Speaker, Lord Fowler, had performed the task.  He already knew what was coming, having checked the website of the artist, Alex Debenham.  Others attending did not know what to expect.  The moment the portrait was unveiled it drew immediate applause.  Word clearly spread, as since the event I have had to keep a picture of it on my Smartphone to show peers who keep asking to see it.  (The portrait is rather too big to carry round with me!)  The most asked question is: ‘Is that a photograph?’

    It is a stunning painting. These things do come with their own risks. My sister in law once presented me with similar sized portrait of myself, but the gasps in the room as it was unveiled were the result of sudden horror rather than amazement!
