Fantastic work, great painting
I'd like to think this is the beginning of a Very Merry Christmas ("Ho Ho Ho" "Take that back or give me satisfaction sirrah!") but the young lady in this particular image strikes me as being just a bit too "Oh well, if there's nothing else to be done he'll do" for me to be confident in that particular opinion...
Such a cad, that Vaughn! Gaddish roustabout, that's all he is.
So beautiful. I love regency style
