A virtual expanding exhibition to share with family and friends.

A shy model, clearly, but no matter.. what he obviously made us think about was mass and muscle... and given rather a short pose, ten minutes (?) I nevertheless got interested in the complexities of those huge hands and their shadows.. a big drawing, at least A2, done in chalk pastel in 2005 in Nicosia.
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.
