With eight brushes in his left hand and one brush in his right hand, Lynn Heatherington Becker set about working on the canvas.

Shortly after the start, she asked to get a little closer to the “canvas”. Then she wondered aloud if the room temperature was okay. Can she pull out her hair?

That recent Sunday, Gwen AP (which is her artist’s name) was Becker’s canvas.

Becker coated Gwen’s abdomen with turquoise and cobalt blue and swirled around her chest in beautiful metallic gold, and the two women talked about motherhood, fashion, and life as an artist.

Westerville artist and model Gwen AP is painted by Lin Heatherington Becker at Becker's house in Dublin.

“I always start with the torso,” Becker said, brushing the navel of her model. “I want to give you freedom with your arms and legs as long as possible.”

Soon, Gwen AP turned her into a magical one in the middle of Dublin’s Becker’s living room, inspired by the intricate Indian mandala-like design, so from the head with colorful body paint. It will cover your toes.
