She rarely asked me for help, but I always offered. Usually I would just carry her supplies around, or I would help do the cleaning.
This time I brought her a refill of water to mix in her paint. She was painting an arranged set of flowers which were placed on a chair, and she thanked me for my assistance. My mother loves art. She also makes a decent amount of money selling her artwork, and painting custom portraits for people. She even has the reputation of being one of the best artists in the city. I watched my mother continue to paint.
Her eyes were completely focused on her task. When she concentrating on painting, she looked even more beautiful. The passion showed in her eyes. We were in the area of the house which my mother uses to make her art. There were paintings and drawings decorating the walls. Some of the images were of objects, or plants. Others were portraits she made of other people. Some of the people were clothed, some were naked. My mother never minded nudity. I agree with her.
That usually meant she was painting someone nude , otherwise her door would be left open. I went to my room and did my normal things. Then I went to the living room to watch tv. About half an hour later, the door opened and I heard my mother talking to another woman, which immediately got my attention. The model was around my age, and very pretty. When my mother closed the door, she gave me a playfully stern look.
Why would I do that? I already have plenty of abstract paintings, but I need more portraits. Those are usually my best sellers. That means more money, and more women coming here right? She raised an eyebrow. A number of prominent figures in the art community are going to attend. I found out this morning and I got started right away. You usually paint older women, no offense. So that was kind of surprising to me when I saw her. I want to explore diversity. When she determined that I was being sincere, she gave me a big hug, even with all the paint on her clothes.
She taught a few classes during the day, and she continued selling custom made artwork, or selling her artwork online. She did things the way they were always done. But whenever she found a new model, she would become excited, and it would be her main priority.
I would help her set up the room and help arrange her painting supplies. When she was done, I would help her clean everything. Unfortunately, she never let me watch her paint anyone in the nude. She also meant what she said about wanting to paint a diverse crowd. The women that posed for my mother were of various age ranges, and different ethnic backgrounds.
Some of the models were pale white, others were brown or black. She always asked for my opinion, and I always told her the truth. Her nude portraits were amazing. They captured the beauty and feelings of the woman who were painted.
There was an incredible amount of detail to their bodies, and you could see the emotions painted in their eyes. After she had enough female models, my mother focused on painting men. Most of the male models were older, and of different ethnic backgrounds.
But like she said, she wanted people of all age ranges. I arranged the paint and art supplies for my mother. It was the last nude painting she planned on doing before the art exhibition, which was only a week away.
I heard my mother talking on the phone in the other room. After I finished setting everything up, my mother came into the room with an upset look on her face. There are plenty of other male models right?
Most of the young male models who live nearby are university students. I already have several portraits of older men. Artistic integrity is important to me.
My collection has a theme to it. Without the final portrait, the collection would look incomplete. I really appreciate it. I know you could have done so many other things instead. Her kisses were always special because they were loving. I smiled at her, and she smiled back. She knew I liked it. When she came out of her room, she greeted me with an unusually warm expression on her face. She was dressed in the outfit she wears to paint. She gave me another kiss on the cheek, a big one.
Then she thanked me again for all my help. She sat down next to me, and she placed my finished bowl of cereal on a nearby counter. My mother is a very nice woman, and she always treats everyone with kindness, but this was different.
I think your art is great. I started painting when I was around your age. It changed my life in a wonderful way because it gave me direction. It gave me a way to express myself creatively, and I feel in love with it. You want me to pose for you? No one will recognize you.
No one would ever know the difference. You can use your imagination and paint the rest. The painting must be pure, or it means nothing. I would feel like a con woman if I tried to display stuff like that. She made up her mind, and there were no other option. My mother is a very persistent woman, she always has been. I used to be shy in college, especially when it came to my body. But I overcame it.
I posed nude for my art classes a few times. And I still do it privately. I let my friend paint me nude sometimes, and then I paint her nude afterwards. My promises are always good. I knew how much she needed me to do it. With the look in her eyes, how could I say no? Her lips were pressed all over my face as she kissed me everywhere. Everything is already set up. My mother had all of the big responsibilities.
I just carried stuff. This time, I walked into her painting room feeling like I was going to take a major exam, which I barely studied for. I felt like a fish out of water. There was a sense of nervousness and awkwardness which came over me.
