a la Matisse
Oil, 28 x 22. I have been exploring the figure at the Mclean project for the Arts "Open Studio". I'm very pleased with this little semi-abstract nude. Our post-modern society is a funny combination of "liberal" and "prurient", which would amuse me if it were not for the fact that there aren't many places where I can show nudes. The public spaces in and around Northern Virginia most often specify "... no firearms, violence, drugs, or nudes!" How nudes got included in there I do not know. Maybe if we all had to go nude, we'd be less obese as a society.
