Obviously, this fellow has been fishing for a good line for a long time. And now that he's found it, he's determined to use it. He's definitely not your medieval-of-the-road lover."This painting started out as a play on words that occurred to me while I was dining on place in a restaurant in Stratford-Upon-Avon," says fantasy artist Jim Christensen. "As I developed the characters, I realized that the little would-be Casanova has been buying a plaice and standing near the fish market for days, waiting for an attractive lady to come out carrying a similar fish so that he can use that line on her! If you look at his watch, you can see it's the eleventh hour. The fun for me is wondering what her reply will be."
