    He didn’t get to first vase with her.

    A few years later, Copley would paint “Watson and the Shark,” one of the most frightening paintings we ever saw.

    Just paint the damn portrait, buster! I’ve got more to do than stand about here all day – that chocolate won’t eat itself, you know. If I didn’t have this vase full of tequila so I could take a swig every five minutes, I’d be a basket case already.
    And stop looking at my t*ts!

    @Arianne

    Thanks for this info Arianne. i looked it up, and realised that I knew the painting (and it is pretty horrible), but not the artist or the story behind it.
    It’s also inspired some really interesting ‘copies’, many of them from children – I had a good ten minutes looking at these.
    THANKS

    That is exactly what this picture conveys.

    As Copley sipped on his vino

    Ms. Watson thought him a meano

    She said (not in jest)

    “If he touches my breast

    He’ll wake up tomorrow in Reno."

    Click-to-enlarge image can be found here, or here, or at Mr. Melcher’s blog entry.

    Mrs.George Watson (Elizabeth Oliver) is described by its current-location page. This has the first page of a magazine article (for $14 you can download the whole thing) which says she was a distant cousin of the artist, and an online book recounts a visit by a Colonel George Watson to the artist’s home; but I can’t say for sure he was her husband. The artist’s Wikipedia page and collection (more under Subcategories).

    Tenth of the 13 works by this artist, that have, so far, appeared in Mr. Melcher’s blog, to also appear here.
