sleeping

There’s something so intimate and calming about watching someone you love sleep, and I painted this portrait of my sweetheart to capture a bit of that feeling. I’ve painted him a number of times and not usually sleeping. Here he is photographing me, and, as a bonus, there’s also a portrait of him by Becca Bernstein in which he’s doing Tai Chi. In this portrait, he’s playing his bass and, in this one, he’s doing a lot of things.
