    Augustine, the working title of my novel and the subject of this painting by Eric Finzi, a New York-based artist who works with epoxy-resin, a toxic substance which he has to protect himself from during the creative process by wearing full-body gear and face mask.

    Beautifully expressive painting. How is your Augustine progressing, David?

    Thanks, Jill. Augustine is now part of a larger design: a series of inter-linked novels on characters who are insane in various ways.

    Sounds intriguing. Hope all goes to plan with this ambitious project. :)

    Wow - ambitious indeed. Is this literally many novels, or will they all fit into one book? I remember Augustine well from the s/e course.

    It's a collection of novels, Johnny. I would describe it as intimate, rather than comprehensive, say.

    The star of my own magnum opus just happens to be called, Augustine, too... It would appear that I am in good company :-)

    What's your book about, SM?

    It's a modern-day adventure - fantasy based, with Arthurian legend interwoven.

    Mmmm, and is your Augustine a heroine from legend, or from your own pen?

    Nah, David, she's a figment of my 'magination. I was probably subconsciously influenced by my great hero, the artist, Augustus John :-)

    I see. Mine is drawn from historical accounts. I'm writing fiction but trying to stick to facts yet giving myself freedom to invent, too.

    And like all our heroes, we often have to put to one side - or gloss over - their rather more unpalatble traits...

    Tell me about it! My first draft was practically hagiography.

    . . . but I'm learning.
