Painted Nude 10 1 23

This work of contempory figurative art was completed late Sunday morning. The photographic aspect was captured approximately a year earlier for a series of images I was calling Venus Reborn. That project explored the dynamics of sensuality as an expression of life force. The time passed was necessary to develop the reflection, insight and maturation required to transform the image into a painting by way of the development of new processes that did not exist at the time the photograph was taken.
