Anna V will be made portrait tomorrow, with Donald who is cat. For Anna III I did have various portrait in honour of Victorian Era, which now hang in dining room. For Anna IV, was only one painting, before she escape into Scottish wild: Gethsmane. In this she pose as Our Lord on night before crucifixion. Anna IV was special dog, but perhaps I should have decide John Baptist. It was intend to be one of various New Testament scene. Now, for Anna V, I am in midst of ‘Famous Couple’ series of painting. I have never before had cat; and when I get cat, Donald, I lose dog, Anna IV (although she later reappear to be fed by citizens of Scottish village and Donald, my friend). So I get another Dog, Anna V, and I find I have new dog and new cat at same time! Then it come time, as I have habit to, for birthday portrait of Anna I decide to have portrait of both. So far in series I have had pose the following, according to my instruction for artist:
