Morning. Remove clothes hanger from wardrobe. Remove, with ill-tempered flourish, jeans from hanger rail. Put on jeans. Then notice scrunched up denim shirt, still hanging, its pose echoing the mood of the day. Draw it, first in pencil, then in pastel, finally paint it. If anyone knows what the circles are, I’d be pleased to find out. The painting is presented in a silver-gilt frame by Stewart Heslop of London.
