let’s say this drawing takes place during, i don’t know… their honey moon? or after a very long separation? after a congress? or when he left for his obligations as governor? (well… at some point, letters are not enough -YEAH THESE LETTERS YOU BURNED THOMAS! *forever frustrated*-) so she is wearing a nightgown very historically inaccurate, i know, and has her hair down because they are just about to “go to bed”. And yes, he lifts her up. Out of character? Probably but i couldn’t resist: he is tall, she is short… it’s effortless!
I love thomas' shoulders here-- I can't explain how, maybe how they are angled? haha but they both look so sexy even if you can only partially see their faces. Must be the art's aura itself thats hot haha ;D
