Nudity in art
I have received some criticism in the last year or so as my artwork begins to take a more sensual turn. I think there are a lot of people who tend to identify nudity in general, and portrayal of nudity in art in particular, as pornographic. I do not share this tendency, though the comments I've received re: my sculptures and a couple of my paintings tends to make me a little gunshy when it comes to sharing them. Nevertheless, my next post, tonight or sometime tomorrow morning, will fall under the classification of "fine art nude." Consider yourselves warned.
