The Newfoundland Painter


   A Newfoundland painter by the name of Skipper Drover, while not a brilliant scholar, was a gifted portrait artist. Over a number of years, his fame grew and soon people from all over the country were coming to him in Long Harbour for his paintings.
   One day, a very attractive young woman pulled up to his house in a stretch limo and asked Skipper if he would paint her in the nude. This was the first time anyone had made this request and it had Skipper a bit perturbed. The beautiful lady told him that money was no object. In fact, she was willing to pay
him up to $5,000 cash.
   Not wanting to get into trouble with his wife, Skipper asked the lady to wait while he went in the house and conferred with Rose, his missus. In a few minutes he returned and said to the lady, “T’would be me pleasure to paint yer portrait, miss. The wife says it’s okay. I’ll paint ya in da nude, but I have ta leave me socks on so I have a place to wipe me brushes”.
