"In the age of hand held electronic devices, I have found that they are ever present, even in the confines of my humble studio. For quite sometimes now, my model has doubled as my studio manager. So she often has her phone handy so that she can complete business tasks during breaks. I like to paint her doing the activities that I see her performing on a regular basis. As with almost every nude study, it is about capturing the light and the many colors and hues that it draws out of the flesh. It was interesting to do this while she was using her phone – really I just wanted her to multi task.

In all honesty, there is a lot going on in this painting that was an enjoyable challenge for me: the soft light, the ears, the position of the hands and the ‘too comfortable’ posture of the figure. It begs the question: if no one were there to bother her, would a woman be found texting in the nude as though she had been interrupted while getting ready for the day?"
