A restaurant in Bath, UK, hired my paintings for display, changing them around every now and then and adding new ones as I produced them. Originally, the walls were adorned with my rock legends but after I completed "Man On A Sofa" they liked it so much they added it to the mix. For a bit of fun, we had all the waiters wear white socks so people could try to guess which waiter was the model. However, because one of the customers objected to the nudity it was eventually taken down. It was later sold to a Sydney collector who has since taken it to his new home in America along with eight of my other paintings, a series entitled "Too Many Margaritas".
