Glory be......


I have been waiting for a legitimate excuse to post this painting for some time.........Luckily for us all, the beautiful woman who is the subject of it gave me such an excuse on Friday.

Yes, yes, I know it's now Tuesday, but the weekend was all frantic, and I couldn't get to the machine 'cos my aforementioned daughter was busy "bebo-ing".

So, the excuse is that the young lady in the painting has been a major catalyst in me securing an agreement to paint in a rather surprisingly classy gentleman's club.

Think Toulouse Lautrec for the Noughties, I'm fairly shaky with excitement about it.......loads of possibilities, I'm thinking a whole series of BIG canvases, lap dancers, high heels, dim lights, what's not to like ???

Can I come and hold your paint pots?

And for my edification, what's 'bebo-ing'? I'm so not down with the kids.....

Of course, I may even let you rag my brushes....

Bebo-ing is like Bloging, but obviously much cooler.

Wow! Great pose! Love the way you cropped her. A voluptuous woman to say the least. Beautiful painting!

That is wonderful, Sam that she helped you secure an agreement in a gentleman's club. Now what did you do for her, I wonder? haha..you're funny, Sam, lap dancers, you naked on bike and such..I guess your wife must be pretty relaxed about you and beautiful naked ladies in your studio and now in "gentleman's club?" Congratulations to you!

bebo-ing...hmmmm. okay, hadn't heard of that one before.

hey ana,

I think it must be the cold northern climate here, we all get our kit off as a show of defiance to mother nature !

Herself is very relaxed about my work, maybe sharing the burden
helps...

As for bebo, the addy is; www.bebo.com.

WAY too cool for old folks like me though.

oh, I see, Sam. I remember getting my "kit" off on a city street a few years back, but that was just a show of defiance to my husband! he wasn't as relaxed about it as your wife though.

yes...bebo.com...looks like another myspace.com.

may I ask how old are you, Sam? it appears from your lovely bike portrait that you are somewhere in your mid-twenties? I am obnoxiously nosey.

That kind of flattery will get you very far indeed !

I was 40 in January.

........by the way ana, nice work with the public stripping, I bet that straightened the hubby out !!

Ana Banana said...

Well you could have fooled me. I thought you were at the most 25 - 26. Tomorrow is my birthday, I regret to say, I will be 42...feel like 10 or 11....maybe 12.

No, it did not straighten hubby out. He took it much more seriously than I would imagine a man to. I loved the freedom and I'm sure others did, too, but, alas...hubby straightened me out all too soon. Now I am a good and well-behaved wifey.
