London, (ANI): Rolling Stone star Ronnie Wood has said that his new
girlfriend has inspired him to keep painting. Ronnie, who split
from Jo, his wife of 25 years, in 2008, has dated Brazilian polo
coach Ana Araujo, 30, since the start of the year.
And the 63-year-old has swapped boozy nights out for quiet
evenings in with his sketchpad and paints. “I"m doing a lot of
portraits of Ana. She is very inspiring to paint," the Daily
Express quoted Ronnie, who performed at the Vintage At Goodwood
Festival at the weekend, as telling Day n Night.
“I"m getting really prolific, turning out two paintings a week.
I"m doing winged horses and landscapes too. Music helps me paint
and painting helps me with music. I"ve done a lot of both this
year. I"ve never been away from them," he added.
