A Passion for Nudes

Happy Saturday!

If you’ve known my art for any period of time, you already know I like using vintage nudes in my collage pieces. My friend, Linda, used to tease me if I didn’t include one, asking me if something was wrong with me that day.

I went back and forth on today’s creation. I’d put the page together in a way I liked, then began second guessing myself now that I’m posting my art here for the general public. Do I not post? Post with a warning? Do I cover her up in some way?

You’ll notice the little butterfly at the bottom left corner. I like it there, however it began as something I’d used to cover the nudity of the woman in the picture. Try as I may, I just couldn’t find a way to be more modest while still feeling as good about the collage.

Feb 5 - A Passion for Nudes

Finally I realized that I’m creating the art for me — so, if I feel like feeding my passion for nudes today, then that’s perfectly ok.
