Today, is a happy day for me, since drawing stopped in October, I have been faffing about with this and that, knowing that deep within the corners of my mind, I was still yearning to keep drawing older people. As I said to people last year “I’m like a dirty old man looking at young girls in reverse..A young…ish ( I confess, I am over 50!) woman seeking out any older people… to talk to and draw though! I put out a call for new sitters, two weeks ago and have had a pretty impressive response already. My first sitter started today, his name is Bill. I felt rather nervous to start with but the future looks bright. Bill is a great story-teller, he is a passionate about theatre, and literature and does a fine North Country accent, he is a Norfolk man. He will come to studio again next week.
