. . and thats the he and the she of it . . . James Joyce
Thanks to arts writer Robert Amos for this addition to the Portrait Gallery. Robert is wearing a suit he specially designed. It is covered with his hand written script of text from Finnegan's Wake that he wore at the recent Art Gallery of Greater Victoria's Art to Wear event.
Thanks Nicola . . Perhaps one day when you are in town you can visit the Portrait Gallery for tea and chat. . I expect you have lots of stories that can be shared from the images in this self portrait collage. Thanks again and I'm pleased to see you as part of the project. See you in the mail!
