Hi strangers!

wow, it has been over 2 years since I have been here! I logged in and saw so many still familiar names. I hope everyone is well!

Myself, I am terrific - and busy. I never have gone the formal portrait route (although I wouldnt have minded), but I am still painting figuratives and selling through galleries.

Thought I would pop on to say hello, and post my latest. A little on the edgy side for here perhaps, but it is so mild in terms of nudity - that I am hoping it will post.

Wow, this is gorgeous. What a beautiful range of colors for the skin tone. There are really nice textures. You can almost feel the smoothness of the skin and the coarseness of the hair. The viewer's eyes just make a lovely (reversed) S-shaped line down their bodies.

Congratulations on a beautiful painting!

Hey Kim!

That's beautifully done and so recognize-able as yours... the way the skin is handled --- Somewhere along the way you've developed a very distinctive style! Gorgeous!
