Hard at work in his slippers
He was sharpening a blade. A massive blade. Done sort of machete. And he was sitting there in his slippers! I was absolutely fascinated by his absorption in his job with no thought of health and safety.
So I engaged him in conversation and sketched him as we chatted. I say chatted. But he spoke Spanish or Galician I wouldn’t know the difference and he had no idea what I was talking about. And so for a few moments we were connected. And now here he is in paint. Hard at work in his slippers.
