    I don’t always wear a black suit while I paint, but when I do, I drink Dos Equis.

    The artist, though rather hirsute / yet also supremely astute / chose a muted palette/ lest some droplet might get/ on the vest of his favorite suit.

    Hey, you got a spot of red paint on your coat lapel.

    I’m too sexy for my pallet…

    all have info, or links that point to more info, about this artist (again, the askart.com bio can be read in full for free on Fridays), perhaps in addition to what’s pointed to by the title URL. So far, 6 works by him have been used here, with 1 repeat (7 times total).

    has the prior strip (my comment there included 2 of the artist info URLs).

    Guillaume, a painter with an extreme case of OCD, was so meticulous about his work, that he often painted wearing his best Sunday Suit.

    His brother Jules, had no such hangups and frequently painted in his Birthday Suit.

    Dueling portrait artists. You can see THIS artist’s view, but we can’t see the subject’s view of the painter.

    Michael Jackson told me to start with “The Man In The Mirror”. On the other hand, he thinks painting is as easy as “A,B,C, 1,2,3”. I bet you can guess what I told him after all of his crummy advice. No? “Beat It”.

    Even though he never showed his son any approval of his hobby, when is son was out George liked to sit in front of his son’s easel and pretend he’s a painter too.
