Vale Jörg Schmeisser…

6 06 2012

It was Jörg Schmeisser’s funeral in Canberra today. How sad we all are.

Our thoughts have naturally been with the family;  he really was one of Art’s true gentlemen.



[It’s a shock when one of your heroes goes. We’re going to miss that glowing Jörg Schmeisser ‘ochre red’ –  Megsie used to dye her hair precisely that colour in a gesture of serious homage. n(Ed)]
