While I was in Dorset I discovered a wonderful artist. Her name is Elaine Delmaine. Elaine used to be a skilled fabric artist, but sadly she had a stroke and was unable to hold a needle anymore. She sat down a lot and used a pen to strengthen her hand. The thing about sitting down a lot is that you see a lot of people walking away from you. The rest, as they say, is history. Elaine now does the most wonderful paintings of people – from the back.
Scarily she seems to have sketched me both as I am on the outside, and what I see inside my head.
Here is what I look like from the back …
…and here is what I want to look like, well a girl can dream and I have the earrings already!
