i am pleased he's doing something for him. something that has nothing to do with what i want or need or think or feel but what oli wants. art's always been his, wholly and completely. i'm pleased he's going somewhere he'll get more of it. there's no art galleries in repose, no museums or exhibitions and no one who paints the way he does. he'll have all that in the capital. it's not the same as pleasure he's going, but i don't tend to have conversations with oliver in public anyhow.
