In that time I don’t recall ever seeing her sit still. Then I remembered, she’s one of those active people. You see, artists are relatively sedentary. We are quite comfortable with sitting patiently in front of a canvas or pad of paper with only our eyes and hands showing any signs of life. Kathleen is far from that, she exudes life; constantly on the move, seemingly always doing or learning something, a quintessential “Jill Of All Trades”. Employed as an administrative assistant, she is also an experienced equestrian; an avid mountain biker; owns and operates a small hobby farm; an entrepreneur, a community volunteer, a charitable funds raiser, and that is just what I’m aware of. Through all this, Kathleen still finds time for her husband, her family, and her friends. One day, apparently, she must have been going down a list of vocations and realized she hadn’t been an “artist’s model” yet. Lucky for me. I often complain to colleagues and friends about the lack of life drawing I get to do these days, mostly due to finding a model I know I can count on. So, thankfully, my dear friend volunteered. I’m still not sure if it was to fill the missing vocation mentioned above or just because she was getting tired of hearing me whine and complain. Regardless, Kathleen has helped me out on countless occasions and I have noticed something during our sessions...it’s the only time I ever see her sit still.
