My gaze

catches your eyes

and is temporarily




it slides down

the sweet slope

of your nose.


It lingers

for a moment

at your sensual pout.


It follows

the line of your jaw

to the lovely tilt

of your chin.


It is briefly captured

in the lustrous curl

of your hair.



It is drawn inevitably

to the elegance

of your throat.


Where it stops.


And I quietly imagine

fixing my collar

just there.

    Hi, really like your style. I have to say the pictures are equally beautiful. Do you mind if I ask where to find them? Thanks x

      Thank you. It is not easy. I have spent an age tracking down mainly contemporary figurative painters. There is no single place.
