I’m very leary now about any editing attempts – but, “Each Tuesday night, a group of us gets together to paint “. I personally, as just my preference you understand, would choose the phrase “get together to paint”.
I’ve tried just about every whining approach I can think of to get a model. Invariably they ask do they have to be nude. I don’t know why they are so skittish about going off to the woods for a short three hours. I’m always very upfront that I will pay for and bring my own wine. I was going to ask this elderly lady at the gym if she would mind posing but after just a few words she skittered off with a look that led me to believe she might not be a good candidate for modeling. Lisa tells me I might have better luck if I quit exposing myself. I’m going to give that a try.
Actually, it is a numbers game (huge numbers). Not many are interested in painting from any angle; painting, posing, or just viewing. So when you ask, the most frequent response is what for? Well, money. Ask people that look like they could use a few dollars.
Just numbers, keep asking. No you don’t have to take your clothes off, at least not until I get this paint on my palette.
