Today was a lovely, straight forward affair, no camera’s, no steering the conversation to ask pertinent questions for the record about family etc; we had a free rein. We talked about art, museum’s, theatre, jewish culture, religion (we are both atheist’s), and a bit of politics all, most enjoyable. The drawing took shape well and I feel perhaps I have, captured a little of David. I plan to exhibit Joyce and David together; my feelings after drawing both of them is that they are both pretty clever, and contrary to the stereotype of scientists, not at all geeky but both very warm and personable. Thank you David it was a great pleasure, and I have learnt some interesting new things from you about science, travel and culture.
