Joy, first of all - it is nice to make your acquaintance. Secondly - could I have your husband?

There are days when I would give him away...and those are the days when he would happily leave. And I'm happy to meet you too!

I was an art major in college and Fred was my nude model. I took him with me when I dropped out of school! (remember Sharon, my comment about our similar college experience?) He's the one with a Fine Arts degree in painting but never touches the stuff now. We have been married 27 years, raised three kids, and still live hand to mouth as bohemian artists.

I'm very lucky that my impulsive decision to drop out of college & cancel my wedding plans to run off with the model actually worked out.

In this case the fastest and best brush claimed more than just respect!

Kimberly Dow, I visited your website...Wow.

I love your new painting Unrepentant also Charity and Pensive. Watch out, I am inspired to try some of these poses..I may steal from you.

Good for you, Joy!

As you can see I've been following this thread, too. When I checked in, there were 8 viewing. A very interesting way to meet.

Maybe the sight of him made you realize there had to be some better-looking ones out there.

Holy Moley Joy! You took home the hot nude model! I am so impressed. And he washes your brushes.... You are my kinda gal. Now that's an artistic standard to live up to.

Thank you for the compliments. I just heard today that 'Charity' is going to the OPA show.

Sharon, I have a really hard time imagining you so...timid. Oh, by the way - I would like a PM about that eye candy thing.

When we finally had the courage to actually LOOK at the model it was indeed a frightening sight. He was old, potbellied and in a dirty jock strap. Not exactly what young girls dreams are made of. He probably knew I was a novice (think as in nunlike at that time) and threw the lewdest part of the pose in my direction. Why I did not take Holy Orders as a result is a mystery to me today.

Sharon, This story makes me LOL until I ROFL and LMAO!! Thanks for making my day!
