As I was out last evening, having a light meal before venturing to galleries to look at art for dessert, I saw two lovely women, engaged in conversation not more than ten feet from where I was sitting. Although I didn’t hear anything they said, their mannerisms, the tilting of their heads and the animation in their eyes was charming. I want to paint them. I want to see if I can portray the beauty I saw. I asked them, and I hope they will let me.
