An Intimate Portrait

Today I get to pose my husband for 'The Musician' in the artisan series.
I'm excited about it.
And nervous.
And excited.

I didn't want to have a piece with a guitar in it. I had another plan that involved a female flautist. But all the passion, drive and magic I know in this world concerning music comes from my man. There's no question that he's the one I need to paint.

He was up very late creating (two ships crossing in the night last night) and I am up very early so I think I will let him sleep for a bit before I pounce.

I'm just so excited for this shoot.
I'm just so excited for the presence of him.
Of trying to capture something so beautiful.

I think this portrait will be infinitely more important to me than my self-portrait.
I really hope I can pull this off.
His world means so much to me...I think it's quite possible that it's impossible for anybody to capture even an ounce of it.
But dammit...I'm going to try.

And I'm very, very excited about that.

Wish me luck!
