Painted a few years ago, this painting celebrates the parties of Liz and Madeline in Portsmouth town  which you can see in the background. I added some imaginary people from the Italian Commedia to add to the merriment and joy of the event, some music, some animals and the famous Venitian arches, tapestries from Medieval times and Oriental carpet designs, and tiles from the palaces I love...
