  1. these are all so compelling and would love to know the history behind the last one! i'll have to come back and read your comments...the idler is fascinating the way she is sitting on the fur with the expression of I'm not sure what...and the source is gorgeous!


  2. i love the first and the last.

  3. I'd love to know the story behind the first one. The last one too for that matter. These are lovely.

  4. In the last picture, is the black person a woman, or a eunuch? [Guess I want to know the backstory, too!]

    Thanks, as always, Gina.

  5. CR: I think that might just sum it up for a lot of people; judging by the small number of comments this week! :-)

    I perhaps have too much time on my hands that I like to fill with frivolous things like blogging. ;-)
    I need me a grandkid or somefing. Really feeling that empty nest blues lately...

  6. Great series of nudes! I love all the beautiful curves, especially the third and fourth. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a lovely comment :)

  7. You're right Sphinx, Nudes are painted to be watched, to make a personal idea, but not really to comment. I've seen them, yesterday.
    I thought that standards of beauty have changed so much.
    That's a tribute to women.

Emily Dickinson - The Belle of Amherst
"When the Amherst sphinx styled herself a pagan, she meant she didn’t believe in the biblical God. What sort of deity, if any, she did believe in is hard to pinpoint."
