No Nudes Is Good News?

June 17, 2013
   Over the weekend I got this email from my best friend:

"At age 66, does taking up painting in the nude make you a better artist, or just certifiable?"

  So, I thought to myself, Well, perhaps I have been taking this painting in the nude a bit far. It's a bit grotesque for someone this old to act so, well, immature. And, although I still did do a session au naturel, I decided to spare you the raw details of my efforts. Then, I got this:

"I can't believe you're going to drop the ball on this after all that build up. This is total proof you are a hopeless ADD goonball."

So, without further ado, here are two paintings I finished during my lunch hour. One was done completely clothed and the other one, well, here is photo positive proof of the strip tease part:

Daily Whipout, "At Least Keep Your Shoes On!"

Okay, here are two paintings. One of them was painted completely nude. Can you spot which one?

Daily Whipout, "Cloud Rider"

Daily Whipout, "A Pensive 66 Kid"

BTW: Regardless of clothes, that is the best ear rendering I have ever done.
