Having a portrait painted sounds VERY intimate to me. It involves a lot of trust and letting down your guard.

If he has an artist's "personality", maybe he goes out on the limb and THEN checks to see if it is strong enough to hold him, but us non-artists tend to be more cautious.

OK--that was a MAJOR overgeneralization and I hope I didn't offend any artists OR non-artists.

My point being that what doesn't feel risky and open to him might to you--like the painting. I mean, a painting of yourself--what if you don't like it? It is still a bit early in the relationship to have to deal with that, so maybe that is making you uneasy?
