Every day, he woke up early and worked late and he was bringing perfection with every stroke of his paintbrush.
As each day passed, he gained a better understanding of the female body and was able to really make his painting shine.
After a month of getting up early, going to bed late, and spending all day at his easel, the artist had become very weary from this non-stop effort to create perfection and decided to take it easy for the day.
Since his nude model for the painting had already shown up for the day, he suggested that they merely have a glass of wine and talk, since normally he preferred to do his painting in silence.
So, they talked for a few hours, finally getting to know each other better.
Then, as they were sipping their claret, the artist heard a car pulling up outside.
He jumped up quickly and said to the model, “Oh no! It’s my wife! Quick, take your clothes off!”
