"Naked in Paris". She likes to take off her clothes as often as she can. Her dog thinks she's weird. In her diary she wrote, "I was naked in Paris..."

This painting is about 4 ' high. Ha. Bigger than life! 3' wide, acrylic on canvas, 2007.

My friend John says I might be less of a starving artist if I would stop painting obese naked women. He asked me, "Who actually wants that on their wall." I said, "I do." He came back with, "Fine, then you buy it."

Love the panties on the floor:) Glad you don't mind the comments... I really do love your work.

Mind, I love them. I feed off of people's real thoughts, whether they are for or against me and my work. I tire of rhetoric and niceties.

Yea, the panties make it, I think. In the next few days I'll put up more paintings. Each of those from the last series have a story behind the items I used.

Oh yah, the panties are a nice touch - I was too busy looking at the cute dog I didn't noticed the panties on the floor or the naked lady on the chair.

Ha, if you missed the lady you are a very focused person.

The expression on the dogs in that series is the whole thing really. I'm working on more of them. The dog is the one who 'gets it', the humans... well, once again, they are missing the point.
