The One Off

The One Off

“I’ve got a commission painting a ceiling. It’s keeping me really busy. I’ve got a crick in my neck and my back’s killing me. I wanted to do a nice seascape with a few gulls, but this chap wants 1100m2 of religious stuff.

I’ve started my Moses sculpture, but had to put it on hold. Should I give him horns? What do you think?

Yes, really looking forward to coming home for Christmas. I miss Florence.

Love you too, Mum.”

Michelangelo puts down the phone and jumps into his warm bath. There’s nothing like soothing water to make you feel alive.
