'When I am laid in earth'

The end is in sight. With an extension from the gallery, I've been able to slacken off a little, but I'm now at the stage where I have to keep moving from one painting to the next, glazing, tinkering, scratching out, get the idea.

I play music as I paint. But what happens is that I get so involved with the painting that I can't be bothered to change the CD, so I just play the same one again. And again. And....

I've had Dido and Aeneas in the machine for days. It's getting to the point where I could probably do the complete opera solo.

You've heard nothing until you've heard my Dame Janet Baker!

When I am laid in earth, May my wrongs create
No trouble in thy breast;
Remember me, but ah! forget my fate.
