Striking a pose for art class

Well it was bound to happen: earlier this month I began work as a model for art classes. It's fun. I dig it! Sometimes the classes call for nude modelling   ooh la la - and other times, athletic shorts suffice. The artists, largely older white ladies, all like having me in the center of the room.
Maybe it's my creative poses or ability to maintain a pose or

The attendees, mainly student and hobby artists with two or three established professionals among the lot, congregate regularly to sketch the human form.

During last week's morning class I luxuriated in a repose pose -- and feel asleep. The group had twenty minutes to draw and I was, thankfully, brought back to consciousness by the instructor shouting, Cinco minutos mas. Five minutes! (it's a bilingual class). It might have been embarrassing otherwise, no? Hehehe. A break followed - whew! - and I quickly made for the coffee and cake.

At any rate, it's a sweet gig and the groups, adorable. Am looking forward to being the live model for more art sessions.
