I fell in love with this woman whom I'd drawn from imagination and dreams. Late at night I'd sit and look at her and wonder if anywhere there was a woman who had that wistful hopeful look, sipping an aperitif, making it last. Hands daintily folded waiting for me. I kept looking and then I found her and people said to her, "Did you pose for that poster?" but it had been the other way around.
