A couple of weeks ago I attended the local art class.
I being the model. I always love to strip off in front of a class full
of artists. Set the pose for the evening, find a comfortable position, fix my eyes on a spot so as not to lose concentration and fall asleep. This picture was done with chalk on a piece of beige paper. David, the guy who runs the art class, has produced this rather excellent picture.. I'd like the finished piece but we ran out of time.. next time maybe I'll ask David if I could keep it. Some thing else to be proud of .. hang on my wall. I have one painting already on my wall from Allen, an elderly man who is very good. I asked him once if I could take a photo of the finished piece on my phone, he actually gave it to me. ;)
I don't know much about paints, crayons and the such but I do know a good painting when I see one. The artists there are very talented. They range from students to 70+ all with varying abilities. Come tea break I slip my dressing gown on and wander round to see how they have drawn me, some I have to smile at.. but some I am in absolute Ore of. I did actually have a go at drawing once... but I find it easier ( though it isn't) to sit perfectly still. Something most people find very hard to achieve.
