  1. I love the idea of exploring the relationship that develops between artist and subject. I think there are so many aspects of humanity that could be revealed! Sounds so interesting!

  2. Sounds like you were in the Musee d'Orsay. I've always been on the artist side as well in drawing classes. Good idea for a different POV.

    1. Yes, I was. Such a fantastic museum. :)
      Quite possibly my favourite museum of all time, in fact.
      (One of these days I'll write something based around Rodin's 'Gates of Hell'.)

  3. What an excellent "pilgrimage" - enjoyed your article!

  4. I love hearing about the inspiration behind various works of art/literature. Your book sounds compelling, particularly given your background. I can't wait to read it!

“I'd make a comment at a meeting and nobody would even acknowledge me. Then some man would say the same thing and they'd all nod.” ~Charlotte Bunch
