This past Sunday, the theme with our male model was – aha, you guessed it, a studio crucifixion with wrist straps, as my husband, David, aptly put it – a crucifixion on the ground. One of the drawers saw the opportunity and seized it, he’d been thinking about it all week. So he announced it to us apologetically but with quiet determination and excitement as we gathered this sunny Sunday afternoon, his intention – and we all passively, graciously acquiesced, including the model. So while the better part of the population young and old were hunting chocolate Easter eggs – this is what I spent the better part of three hours doing - drawing with a theme.
Tedious but fun because Alan brought freshly baked cookies that his wife Roseanne made. I ate two.
Then at 4 o’clock, the men down below in the pool hall bar, chased us out. They wanted to lock up the building so they could go home for Easter dinner.
