Her mother called and said
she would be a little longer than she thought but it wouldn’t be long.
I said, “Come and sit on this
stool and I will take a few snap shots while we are waiting.”
She laughed and said, “With
my blouse on?”
I said; “Yes with it on
unless you feel comfortable enough with me to strip to the waist and do a few
angles of your upper torso.
I will give you the negatives
and the pictures when I finish your painting. No one will ever see them unless
you show them to someone. When you see your painting you will know that under
the paint is the real image of you not just some surface guess work of the
The first thing I will do is
to draw and then paint you without clothes on and then I will add the clothes
No one else will see the
difference but you will always know the real you is under the top paint.”
She stripped down to the
waist and we did the shoot in just a few minutes and she was dressed before her
She said, “I feel like half a
Godiva being half bare before you.”
I said, “It will make a
difference when I paint you for I will see you in my mind as I draw and paint.”
Her mother came back and said,
‘How are you two getting along?”
I said, “Very well we have
made some progress and I will have something to show you in about a week.”
Three days later I called and
talked to Lesley and asked if she could come by without her mother I would show
her how things were coming along.
She understood why she should
come without her mom and said she would come right over.
I gave her all the shots we
took the other day with a large head shot suitable for framing. I told her I
didn’t have a frame that did justice to her beautiful picture.
She said, “Boy you sure can
lay it on.”
I said, “No, it’s not only that
you are pleasant to look at but from a technical point of view the contours of
you face are perfect and I ought to know.”
I changed the course of the
discussion and said, “Now for the painting. You have your nude down to the
waist photo and it was helpful for doing what you’re going to see.”
I uncovered her painting as
far as I had gone. It was a painting of her nude on the canvas just like the
photo but without a bra.
I said, "Maybe we should just leave it for it is
beautiful like it is. It will garner far more interest this way without being
clad with clothes.”
She said, "That’s really me and
I’m tempted but mom would pass out and my father would want to beat you up.
No, for both out sakes you
better dress me.”
I said, “It will be a shame
but I will do it. Just remember what is under the clothes is exactly what is
under your clothes right now.”
She leaned over and gave me a
quick kiss and said, ‘You’re wonderful and I’m so glad we met.” She went on and
said, “If I didn’t have a boy friend I would like to date you but you see I’m
I tried to smile as I said
“Woe is me!” and we both laughed.
