I had a chat with Stuart earlier, he wanted me to know that he’s written an article about his experience of being drawn by me, for the local paper. Although they have accepted some articles he’s written, they aren’t so sure they’ll publish the one about me drawing him in the nude……. I can understand that, in a local daily paper….. LOL. But he says he’ll send me a copy of what he’s sent them, so that I know what he’s written. That’s kind of him. He says he’ll use it as the basis of his talk that we’re both doing for his writers group in a few weeks time. So reading his words will help me formulate what I’m going to say for my talk! I’ve got a basic idea at the moment, but wasn’t going to think too deeply about it until a little nearer the time. Looks like that’s now then……..!!! 🙂
Stuart and I also talked of general things, and amongst all the babble, he said a really lovely thing – about how much more self confidence he has since I drew him. That’s REALLY good to know, and I was touched that he experienced that positive self worth, and delighted that he wanted to tell me. Perhaps I’m good therapy for him! I hope so, and for others who choose to be drawn naked by me…..
