It’s been a busy year since I last posted on WordPress. Two studios for two different subject matters competing with full-time job, who said lunch time was for eating? that’s painting time! The painting you see above, Awakening, is the product of all those lunch hour painting times, created especially for the show “Men… Nude, Naked and Undressed” at Vincente’s Fine Art Gallery in Bisbee, Arizona.
I finally found a gallery that wasn’t shy about exhibiting art depicting naked men. Vincent Wicks created a group show of exceptionally high quality artists to celebrate the male nude. Why would I as a woman want to paint other women? It’s men who attract me and men who I will paint….! Although I am fond of my Madonna at the Crossing I posted last winter….
A quiet photo op moment at the gallery opening which was swirling with almost 400 people.That’s a Kate Bishop hat I’m wearing, designed for me to wear at the Royal Ascot races. Not many chances to exhibit such a flamboyantly beautiful hat.
One gallery visitor was sure these young men were painted to look like my border crosser in the background…
Sometimes its fun just to kick up your heels and celebrate good times.
“Men… Nude, Naked and Undressed” will be at Vincente’s Fine Art Gallery in Bisbee, Arizona through February 24th, 2016. It’s really a liberating sight…. For a look at the fine art of male nudes on display please visit:
