Not Painting Your Girlfriend Naked

Back reading the NY Times Sunday again….snowstorms, that always seem to blow in on Fridays, continue to make cozyin’ up next to a fire a required part of each day. Sunday’s Styles had a piece about a woman whose partner was painter. He met beautiful girls in his studio and painted them in the nude. She wanted to be there. She felt like she was missing something. He refused to let her pose for him, since other girlfriends of painters he knew had struck him with the canvas upon seeing the result, or beaned him with the brushes. But she kept asking and he didn’t have the money to pay the model, so he finally agreed. She didn’t like the experience…and ended up thinking she was closest to him than any of the other naked models since she knew his scents and intimate habits.
