As an artist whose forte is nude self portraiture, I am especially honored when my work is acknowledged, for the self portrait when noticed and admired, means the artist himself/herself, is admired, personally.
I thank Blue Room for this acknowledgement of both me AND my work. For honoring both my body of work and my BODY, as work, as it were.
This is one group truly worth the dropping of trou, the exposure of self, naked, the strip[ping of every material layer, the effort to take that says “Here I am. Look at me. Look at this.”
I humbly prostrate myself to everyone here for the acknowledgment. And I honor the other work and appreciate sharing in this body of talented artists.
Thank you to Paul Vanzella and pals for starting this magnificent and addictive site!
