Say hello to Amanda

Article by Toni De Groof
For years I was making paintings in my head, but I was never satisfied. Until I met Amanda and she became my [virtual, universal] model.

This is what Amanda has to say :
" ... My name is Amanda and I'm 24 years old. I'm not a real model, I only live in the mind of The Painter. We're like a team. When he makes a painting of me, I put it on-line and give some comment. Or if I want to tell you something, I ask him to make a painting of it. Usually he does, sometimes he doesn't.
