Almost Did This...................

I saw this and thought I'd give it a shot.

A friend of mine once asked me to come to her art class and pose for a face portrait.  I did so and after we were finished, another woman in the room said to come back in a few months.  "We DO do nude people."  I said - "You're not doing me!"  However, when the time came, I called and was picked to pose nude.  However, the week before I was to pose, the woman in charge of the class called and said I wasn't needed.  The woman who had me sit for a face portrait wanted me to pose for a nude drawing, but at her home!  I declined, because I was not risking the chance of pre-teen boys and girls seeing me in the nude.  The woman had adopted a few kids. 

So, I did not pose nude, but came close a few times.

Do you regret not doing it? I've thought about it a few times and just didn't follow through, but still think about it.

posing nude is no big deal. find the light and pick a pose that is going to be comfortable for at least 30 minutes ...i have posed nude for the architect Soleri in his private studio at cosanti in arizona- after taking classes of my own at the university during my architectural studies i was able to do it quite professionally - he said he was going to use his drawings on one of the bell designs he sells to make profit at a big american store, i think it was nieman marcus ?
