I have become a member

I was in his gallery ,minding my own business ,staring at one of-my-all-time-international-favourite-paintings ,Stanley Spencer’s ‘The Last Supper ‘, when the curator engages me in conversation .
He knows everything there is to know about Stanley- about his love of Cookham ,the church, his humour , his time studying at the Slade , what he did in The Great War, his time in the ship-building yards of Glasgow , his marriage to Hilda who he divorced for for Patricia , who was in love with Dorothy …and then he produced the book – Stanley’s complete works .
It would have to fall open at ‘Double Nude Portrait ‘ . I nearly wet myself
