Mathilda May is the 3rd most perfect woman I’ve ever painted. The 2nd is Sophia Loren and the 1st, of course, is my wife! All three were a pain in the arse to paint; Loren and May because extremely beautiful are woman very difficult to render and my wife because…well, she’s just a pain in the arse! Seriously, she’s posed for 90% of my DVD, magazine and book covers (about 300 paintings in all) and bellyached about doing all of them. Then again, I suppose I’d bellyache too if I was asked to crawl through trash in a wet nightie for Arrow Video’s MANIAC COP and get hacked up in most of the others!
