Mad busy weekend. Frantic day yesterday with not one but two new models available. All winter I have been painting alone in my frigid barn, working from sketches and photographs, then out of the blue I'm overwhelmed with gorgeousness. I suddenly got the fear when I realised my ability to paint and hold a conversation at the same time had wilted with the winter gales. Anyway, the upshot is I have done some more towards Open Studios in May, and the wonderful models - both debutantes - have agreed to come back for more. It's a hard old life.
