Models are all different but some are more different than others. (I change everything; 37 x 50 cms, oil on panel 2008) This one took the place by storm and cast her influence on everything around her. With her striking platinum wig, very audacious make up and matching personality she led me to all these bright colours and naif almost humourous treatment of the space. The background elements seem infected by her presence and bend and respond to her personality. The couch seems like a turbulent waterfall with our model lying serenely on the edge unconcerned that she may be carried over at any moment.
