I can only work from a model...

"I can only work from a model. The sight of human forms feeds and comforts me." Auguste Rodin.

I share Rodin's basic need. Without a model my mind and paper is blank. With the model at hand, colours fall on the page with a life of their own.

Wherever the model leads, I follow. Today's painting came about from my model's request for something to read while I paint. The book incidentally, is Van Gogh's letters to his brother Theo.
