An artist had been working on a nude portrait for a long time. Every day, he was up early and worked late – bringing perfection with every stroke of his paint brush.
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, the artist had become weary from this non-stop effort and decided to take it easy for the day.
Since his model, had already shown up, he suggested they merely have a glass of wine and talk – since normally he preferred to do his painting in silence.
They talked for a few hours, getting to know each other better. Then as they were sipping their claret, the artist heard a car arriving outside.
He jumped up and said, “OH NO! It’s my wife! Quick, take off your clothes!”
