During 1971 Paul travelled overseas on the liner Canberra, having been invited by P and O Line to conduct art classes on the ship. Sir Robert Menzies, Australia’s longest serving Prime Minister, who was en route to the UK, attended one of Paul’s classes, curious to know if Paul was related to his old friend Lady Paquita Mawson (nee Delprat). 

During a lengthy conversation about art, families, politics and cricket he kindly consented to sit and Paul created this painting.
