Originally a photo turned stencil painting, now a digitally remastered photo of one of those paintings. When I first stencil painted one of these, 10-15 years ago, I was too embarrassed to show anyone. I thought it was beautiful… too easy though, cheater art. One weekend I added a 40×60″ stencil painting of “blinded” to my Venice Beach CA lineup and was overwhelmed with positive responses. You can’t take a bad picture of a woman in front of the blinds. Now, 1000’s of photos and 1000’s of paintings later, I’m thrilled I explored the hard lines of blinds over the curves of a woman. The only thing better than watching a sunset go down the curve of the earth, is watching it slide across her.
