This man is clutching a painting by me. In a washline mount by me. In a hand-finished frame (by me.) (Crap photo by my cousin)

The big question is: Who is he? :roll:

I have honestly no idea who the guy is, however, based on his appearance/home/car he appears to have/had a few £££'s :)

Alas the man is no longer with us. :(

In his lifetime he was very famous. A household name. A Legend. :P

Yep. That's the man. The BBC did a doco on him in the '90s and my cousin co-produced it. She found out he liked collecting art so to butter him up a bit decided to take him a little painting. He's on his ranch in Montana.
