“I wish I may, I wish I might…”

There is a young painter in Manila, a contemporary surrealist if there ever is one, who is now the toast of town.  Nudes, female and male, feature in all his paintings.

At a recent show of his, A Great Hostess bought a large painting of attractive female nudes in all positions.

She confided to a dear friend that that painting was “her.”  Of course, it didn’t mean that She was the model.  It was just how She saw herself, her Self-Image.  She saw herself as those various sexy ladies in the painting.


Wishful Thinking.  She should buy a Fernando Botero sculpture instead.

    I know Henry Moore is the one famous for his corpulent bronze statues.

    BTW, is the Hostess in question with a surname beginning in “*”?

    By the way, what do you know of the Goq*ingco family of Arayat?

    Fernando Botero! Hahahaha! I saw a huge collection in one of the Koch heirs’ enormous mansions-by-the-sea in Jupiter almost five years ago! I think Boteros are really cute!
