It's been a while, but today Eamonn and I sat down and did some painting together. He did five paintings in the time it took me to do this. Even then, I went back and added to it after he went to bed. We went to a home-made art show at a friend's last weekend and bought a little portrait he did, so I guess I am inspired by that. Also, have been looking at a Maira Kalman book with lots of funny portraits. Very dramatic people she painted from photographs.
