A portrait done from a photograph scrunched up by my good lady (I don't think maliciously) and ironed out (so presumably not) of the actress Meg Ryan. I was prompted to paint her after she was most grossly misunderstood by a completely uncomprehending Parkinson on his TV chat show. The crazed and creased photograph seemed poignantly apposite if you consider the wary vulnerability of a celebrity whose profession thrusts her into the limelight even when she isn't (if you see what I mean).
