I'm sorry, but Diana Rigg in the painting looks like one of my old aunts that always smelled like a moldy closet!

Well, she does not look to jolly but I like the very different approach to the subject. OHMSS looks like a 50' book cover to me.

I disagree, I think Ms Rigg looks rather lovely in that painting. It looks very much like her. You must have had a very lovely looking aunt.
