No it's not one of mine, wish it was!  This is a painting called The Audience by Sir Anthony Sher that is on display along with a lot of his other paintings at The Herbert Art Gallery, Coventry.  I thought all of this work was really brilliant, everything had a meaning to it and you could always see what the painter was trying to say.  Well I thought so anyway.  My favourites of his were the ones that he did of his parents.  He did three of his mother alone and two of those were near the end of her life when she was suffering from Alzheimers and just before her death.  I thought they were really moving because you could see the decline of this beautiful woman right before your eyes.  Definately worth going to see if ever you see an exhibition of his work near you.
