Started work again on the "sexy portrait" of my friend 'Miss T.' A lot of discussion has gone on about what was wanted from this painting. We talked about the wearing of a 'mask' of vanity in portraits because as ladies of size we are sensitive to society's' attitudes. A, her husband, has some very definite ideas on this subject. She, very bravely, has decided to allow me to be the arbiter of the result because she wanted a good painting rather then flattery.
