artists and models

Smile now, signorina.

A joke, perhaps. Sì?
Ok, Desmoulins and King François stroll into the village pub and say to the proprietor....no..no..better not go there. Oh no...please remain seated, Mona.
Umm...ok, I know...What is the best hand to paint with?
You give up, signorina?
Neither - it's best to paint with a brush!

Listen. Francesco is sitting at the caffè and he demands coffee without creme and five minutes later the cameriere returns to Francesco and says sorry signore we have no creme can it be without the milk of the goat?

Do you not understand? - No creme - Can it be without the milk of the goat? Five full minutes, signorina.

No? Look, please signorina, please smile, Mona, just smile so I can finish at least ONE thing! in my lifetime.
Ah, Giorgio was right: I should only paint small children or dogs.

I have been responding to prompts like these for a few months now, and have noticed that the really good magpies get comparatively few comments . . .
