‘Mr. Crayons’ has a cousin (several times removed) who is married to John Harris a very well reowned artist.
John always has issues with his computer and ‘Mr. Crayons’ has been the unofficial official IT support department for many years now. After an particularly irkesome computer glitch, John offered to paint a portrait of ‘Miss. Crayons’ as payment for all the time spent on said issue. The result, a 3ftx3ft original JH oil on canvas painting which we are delighted with.
I could get used to being paid in the form of art, it won’t put food on the table, but at least our walls will look pretty.
