Last nude in space
Maybe I was warming up at the beginning of a long session. But in retrospect I find it a pity the figure here has distortions. However there are some nice things going on in it. So here is the last posting from the little series of short poses I made in chalk on a large chopped-up old acrylic painting last year. They seemed to put the model on her own rocky planet. In this one a few nervous little ochre lines seem to etch her into a stratum of the rock like a kind of cave painting from another universe. Off to Cyprus tomorrow then back to earth and reality next Sunday. Have just spent a fortune on chalk pastels so there will be drawings of Agnieshka for sure. a bientot Jane
An ex BBC TV and radio classical music producer I retrained in fine arts in Brussels after marrying a diplomat and going to live in different countries abroad. I have two school age children and a much loved second home in France. My family and friends are very spread out so the internet is very important. Creative life is often compromised but absolutely vital. A reluctant gypsy I am alarmed to find artistic concepts are not as portable as I once thought. The universality of the human figure (my subject) is not helpful enough in the constant conflict of who I am and where I am.
