    This brings back memories of art classes at the university in the early 1980s. I was working on a double major in Art Photography and Geography. I had to take 2-D design and 3-D design. We often had live models. You made a lovely model.

    1. Thank you, Tim!
      I adored being a life model, brief as it was. I found the artists fascinating, and I knew many were enamoured of me. Except… there was these 2 guys who snickered their session away. I heard one of them say… about my backside… a spread you could raise a herd on! I’m am, to this day sensitive about.. the rear view!
      You know what you are.. You are a renaissance man. It is a wonderful thing! (hug Spunk for me!)

        What? “…a spread you could raise a herd on!” What were they hoping for a model for Auschwitz? You are beautiful, slender and fit with an exceptionally nice looking backside in those sketches. You still look slender, beautiful and fit from the few photos I’ve seen of you. Do you know the line by LMFAO “I’m Sexy and I Know It!”? You can sing that line and own it.

      1. You are correct. The acronyms have reached the point my ancient short term memory fails to cope with. It’s likely for the best I send my regards tagged, TOF. Have a splendid day, TPM

  2. It’s good you have digitally preserved these. A shame that paper has to persish and only has a finite shelf life (like us). This is part of the reason why I do what I do on my blog – archiving paper images so that future generations can enjoy.
    You are so beautiful on pic N° 4, but I like them all. 👍X

    1. TY, dear TVTA! It was long ago. I am happy I have preserved them, as you preserve all the paper medium you do. Perhaps, it is because of your blog that I did so. Thank you! 😀 xo

      1. Good stuff. It’s a bit like photographs too. I keep meaning to find some time to scan some of the photos I have. Some of the childhood ones were already faded-looking even when they were new!! Guess it was the print they used back then. Polaroids and Kodaks, lol.

        1. I know.. I have some neat Kodaks of a climb I did in Peru to Machu Picchu, and a lot of Polaroids of known actors during their fittings. No time to deal with any of that right now!

  3. You were the model? Compliments. A shame the paper is disintegrating… Happens with many papers of the 20th century. They started to put too much acid…
    Thanks for sharing, Resa.

    1. Yeah, I’m the model… I’ve always loved art, artists, musicians, etc. and have always been a bit boho! At least I have preserved these, photographically! Glad you got to see them.

      1. Glad you shared them. “Boho” is “Bohemian”? 🙂 Well, you are an artist too. And quite a good one. It is an honour and a pleasure to “know” you.
        Take care.

    1. It’s a good thing I dug them up. One of them (taped up) began to tear apart with the gentlest of touches. Anyway, I’m glad I have preserved them. {{Hugs}}
      It is a bit of a time machine….

  4. I’m so glad you posted these! Eventhough all are beautiful, I still like the third one more! You are s joy for a painter to draw! Fortunate artists (and very unfortunate the 2 guys you mentioned to Tim… what??????!!!!!!!!!)!!!!! Hard work too! For long sessions, the model may well start turning blue!!!!!!! 😉🤣🤗🤗🤗❤🤗❤🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗 Hera sends her love too!!!!!!❤🤗❤🤗❤🤗❤🤗❤🤗❤🤗❤🤗❤🤗❤

    1. Yeah, the third one is really great. Unfortunately it began tearing when I picked it up, gently!
      That’s why there is tape on it. Seems I took the photos of them in the nick of time!
      Ah… the herd raisers… I’ll bet they never succeeded in becoming true artists.
      Sending love back to you and Hera & purrs from J&J!

      1. So glad you managed to save them!
        As for the guys, yes, well I’m sure the didn’t… artist without an eye is unheard of! 😉
        more love from all of us!

  5. Ah-hem. Ms. Resa, (trying to be professional here).
    Quite impressed.
    Now, I want to see you in 3D
    That’s my apartment number.
    Seriously, beautiful artwork, but then the artist had a beautiful muse to work with.

    1. Aww, thank you, dear Lonely!
      I must say, that is the most professional comment I have ever had on this blog.
      Lol, 3D… I thought I was in 2D. Hmm, I might have my D’s mixed up.
      Interesting, but all that modelling, and I never thought of myself as a muse. That is such a lovely thing to hear.
      However, that was a long time ago. The best, was that I made and saved enough money to go to college. ❦

    1. I was very into yoga, at the time. Remaining still for long periods of time for the artists was enjoyable, peaceful.
      Very happy you got to see these!

  6. Wow – aren’t you so fortunate to have these!
    Makes me think upon the you of today and the you of yesterday. Seems we retain the essence of our being, so to speak. You being such a creative today is just the forward of you being a creative from yesterday. The ‘you’ is your foundation!

    1. I like that! I think we do retain essence. We may change, in ways as we gain education, life experience, but we are still who we are. xoxoxo
