Theresa Bayer

This morning has been fun. Almost wanted to sleep in because of the weather, but I'm happy that I didn't. I modeled for Eve Larson and Theresa Bayer. They are the sweetest and very talented artists. Today I will tell you a wee bit about Theresa and in another post Eve.

Theresa Bayer's creativity always sparks mine. A better way to put it is that she inspires me. If I were an artist I'd be just as whimsical and joyful in my work. As of now, I am simply an art model lucky enough to pose for her. Here's a painting I bartered for last year. Instead of traditional portrait she adds something playful, that makes it more interesting and fun.

Tomorrow I am modeling for her in exchange for my father's birthday present. Theresa created an ocarina, or clay flute with a girl sitting upon it. Good thing he doesn't read blogs, so my surprise is safe!

Here's another for you to enjoy. Other wonders are on her blog and website.

Charming post. Theresa's work is wonderful. I know how it feels to pose for an artist whose work you genuinely like and admire. Makes all the difference. Model inspires the artist, and vice-versa. Makes for a rewarding experience all around.

Glad to see you're bartering your services. I've done some of that too over the years. Earned some nice drawings in exchange, even some handmade jewelry. Wouldn't it be nice if all goods and services worked on the barter system? :lol:

Keep up the great blogging, Waverly!

Yay. I'm glad you like the post, Theresa. Modeling today was fun. See you next week!

Thanks Claudia for the post! It's nice to know that there are other art models blogging out there. Your blog makes me feel connected.
