A nude painting that I did recently. Lately, my nudes come about out of the blue. I usually start with a portrait painting which ends up becoming a nude painting for different reasons. Nude painting is very familiar territory for me. I made so many of them since the age of 17 until well into my early thirties. After I had kids, my focus turned to smaller figurative works and now I think the tide is turning back to larger scale works and perhaps back to nudes. But I don't think I'm quite done yet with portraiture. I still have a lot of portrait painting that I need to make.
