Okay, maybe I spoke too soon in my last post. Yeah I had a rough first day at FIT, but I let it prey on my mind too much and impulsively posted my concerns on the blog. Ooops! Sorry everyone! You see, after that Wednesday double I posed Friday at Spring Studio and it was a terrific night! The usual gang of artists/friends was there – Eleni, Ray, Damian, Bob, Kamal, John, and Minerva the director of course. People I’m very fond of and feel comfortable around. We all had a lot of fun! I was in good spirits and very pleased with my modeling. There was laughter all around, enjoyable conversations on breaks, and Minerva didn’t get mad at me for accidentally hitting her in in the face (don’t ask!). What a difference a day makes. Well two days. Whatever.
So it behooves me to retract my previous concerns, and consider this post a formal renunciation of the last one. Just call me Ms. Backpedaler! Perhaps I should try a career in politics 😆
I do – and STILL – love art modeling. It’s hard not to when you pose all night and then see results like this watercolor by Sandro LaFerla. I first met Sandro at the Salmagundi Art Club a couple of years ago and he has painted me many times since then. Sandro was at Spring on Friday night and managed to capture, in ten minutes, this standing pose I did – stepping forward, arm placed behind me resting across my lower back.
Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday weekend. Just a note that Museworthy’s birthday is approaching and more fun stuff is on the way! By fun stuff I don’t mean me reporting every nuance of every mood and every neurosis and every insecurity that strikes me. I have to stop doing that! <— who am I kidding? Of course I'm gonna keep doing it 😆
