Cap’n Skunkbeard

After supper Cap’n Skunkbeard ordered me out into the freezing cold of the garden to play at pirates. As Sea Salt Sally I persuaded him that I needed to sort out all the messy green ‘ropes’ on the sides of the ship so that we were prepared for any battles – so that got a bit of weeding done. Then I convinced him that Cap’n Skunkbeard would need a portrait so that his enemies could see what a fierce pirate he is, so he allowed me to retire from deck duties to carry out my other duties as the ship’s artist.

Cap'n Skunkbeard is a wondrously fierce pirate! It was kind of him to allow you, as ship's artist, to paint this portrait.
