Behind every successful woman (artist)...

"Jesse at 36"
10 x 8 inches, oil on canvas

...is a husband that's willing to sit for her. It's literally been years since I've been able to coax this guy into the hot seat. Five years. I guess the last time was really painful or something.

Here's his last portrait, from February 2008:

I was just getting back into painting seriously at the time, but I was pretty happy with this one. I've still got it hanging around the studio five years later, so it's safe to say I'm sentimentally attached.

Jesse, I love you. I'm glad you were sick today so you could sit for me, just for an hour or so. I'll pencil you in for another sitting in 2018.
