(This is me in the studio. One of
my favorite painters in our group
Peter Adam appears in the
portrait behind me.
Coincidentally that is a painting
I like almost as much as the
painter. He can really,
really paint.)The book about Lucian Freud that I mentioned in my last
post is fantastic. That's good because in addition to slogging
through finance details, I am sick again. In fact we're
waiting for the doctor to come -- maybe tonight because
today my cold has developed into a painful wracking cough.
My poor family.
When I was feeling a bit more chipper, I thought I'd try
a not altogether flattering portrait of my sick self.
Reading about Freud totally exonerates portrait artists
for painting themselves. As it turns out the watercolour
looks considerably better than the writer at this point.
So I'll spare you.
Have a don't-you-dare-catch-this! day
