Impeachment on BBC2 about the Clinton/Monica Lewinsky affair. Very good. Especially as it seems to the point in recent American history when America really started to hate each other for the sake of hating each other.

Congratulations Lazzard's daughter, she's obviously from talented stock.

Well done to spawn of Lazzard.

Nice one.

Amazing! I love that show. Who did she paint?

The conductor Karen Gibson - it was here worst nightmare, as it happens - black skin tones are a bastard to paint, especially in oils.

Ah, all the paintings of her were great! And the ones of Gyles were pretty good. I wasn't as impressed by the three paintings of the other woman.

Agreed. The young girl was too pretty - always hard to paint because the beauty is all on the surface and anything less than a photographic likeness feels like it's failed. Alice would have preferred Giles - and would have made better job of it I think. Still - it was lovely to get through to the heats - they looked at thousands of paintings. The odd thing is, she isn't really a portrait artist - her stuff's a bit more 'odd'.

Ooh, I really like her stuff. Odd is good. Straightforward portraiture can be pretty boring, to be honest.

Thanks.

My wife is an avid fan, as well as the Yorkshire vet.
