Butterfly on top of a lightbulb - just a touch of humour! This is the first in a new series of paintings showing animals on unusual objects. The ideas are coming thick and fast! Watch this space.
I was recently told (by a man) that painting nudes exploits women. I agree with that when women are portrayed like page 3 girls for titillation. But for me it is about the beauty of the form and sculpture, the elegance of the pose and the subtle skin tones. Sometimes ignorant men say they would love to work with naked women like me, but what they fail to understand is that painting a nude does not have to be a sexual experience, it is a homage. Some fools just don't get it! Anyway I hope my recent painting illustrates the point through it's sensitivty and discretion
