The Dear Queen - #HappyBirthdayYourMajesty

I defy anyone not to be in awe of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, longest reigning monarch in British history. She has certainly done her DUTY - and then some. With surreal highs and lows, continued familial controversy and even hatred, this amazing woman has managed to weather the storms - and carry on. She stands, the penultimate expression and embodiment of Anglo Tradition. Sure, lots of haters out there, but, damn right, she has MORE admirers. I certainly RESPECT her. She is, and has been, a very good, living and breathing, Queen, devoted to the land of her birth, and 'her' people. - Thank you Your Majesty.

To mark the occasion of her 90th Birthday, I have resurrected an older painting, done in 2009 - 'Paparazzi'.  (I mean, SERIOUSLY, poor woman & her family are hounded 24/7.  It's no small wonder they get a bit 'curt at times.) Global INTEREST in this REAL 'Royal Family' is insatiable.

Long Live the Queen!
