My Male Model

by sandihester

I am my lover’s and my lover is mine…there is no flaw in you.  Song of Songs 6:3; 4:7

I’m being very vulnerable here and showing you paintings that I normally would NEVER show you.  I thought I would show you what I do some Sunday afternoons when we’re at home relaxing.  I don’t do much figure painting because I’m really bad at it, so Sunday afternoons if Grady is posted up on the couch flipping the tube or napping – he becomes my model.  As you can see I have a ways to go on my figure painting 🙂 – but how in the world am I ever going to get better if I don’t practice???  At least that’s what I keep telling myself when I butcher Grady’s face in a painting – sorry baby.  If I ever do get decent at it I’ll only be able to paint people with hair on their face 🙂 because Grady is my only model at this point – he’s the only one brave enough to undergo my slaughtering.  Ok, so I thought I would include a real picture of Grady for those that don’t know him – you can see he’s very normal looking – he doesn’t have a weird shaped head, over-sized hands, and he’s not cross-eyed – he’s VERY handsome and I wish I could capture that on paper – maybe one day!  At least they’re not boring – if nothing else you’ll get a good laugh out of them…
