The women in this drawing called “The Kiss” are my friends. I met them when I was in art school. Like many people, they had never posed nude for an artist before. Most people come to pose for me because they love art and want to contribute to my creativity. I like to let the models choose their own poses and by doing so the imagery is different and more natural. I believe in letting my sitters be themselves. In the past I have worked in my models homes where I discovered that when a model feels secure a different kind of imagery and emotional quality can be had. This drawing is part of my ongoing intimate moments series.
