Empowered

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.....

That's really good to know that he's more confident with his body as whole. I'm happy with my body too, although I don't always feel confident when going to the doctor's for my three yearly smear test!! That tends to scare me some what.

Indigo - I think he's more confident within "himself" as much as with his body, which is great to hear!

As for smear tests....... I would have thought you'd have enjoyed that!!!! LOL

So you could be in the paper then! That will be great and I do hope they publish it, although with a local paper that is perhaps a little unlikely, which will be a shame.

As for Stuart feeling more confident within himself, I hope that does apply to everyone that sits for you as I could certainly do with some of that! But I guess I will know tomorrow!!!

Not that I am counting but there is now less than 23 hours! lol I did try to reply to your email yesterday, but thanks to my laptop it may not have arrived, or you have hundreds of them!!!

Good luck with thinking about what to say during this talk and I am sure it will all be just fine. Just remember if I can sit for you tomorrow then you can certainly give a great talk!

Fitzy - I hope it applies too, for your sitting, I've ONLY ever had positive feedback from anyone who has sat for me!! LOL

As for the talk, it's not bothering me too greatly - the worst that could happen is that 50 people are bored rigid for 10 minutes! And, somehow, I don't think that is going to happen.....

I am sure it will also apply to me following my sitting.

As for there being 50 bored people then I am sure that isn't going to happen.

Fitzy - I hope so.... And I hope so! LOL
