Larry Steagall | Kitsap Sun
Art Conrad hung a Santa doll from a cross in front of his West Bremerton home, making a statement about political correctness as well as the commercialization of Christmas.

  3. Your header photo,

    Why is it that these famous artists never paint the pubic hair on male or female, did they insist on the models having a shave before a session.
    I would like to know because I am thinking of trying to create these poses in digital photography. And thinking of having the Temple of Ramsis 111, Medinet Habu, as a backdrop,Or better still if The greedy Dr Zain Hawass would let me use the Tomb of Nefertiti,

    King of New York: I love the concept of your blog - NY through the eyes of a cabbie. I'll have to visit often! Thanks for stopping by!

    Tony: Are you the King of Da Nile? ;-)

    In regard to my blog header - the painter, William Bouguereau, was a "Pre-Raphaelite" - very idealized beauty (usually female), based on mythology (often). I suppose the thought was that the vision didn't include details like pubic hair. But there were and are "famous artists" who've painted nudes much more realistically. Some of them can be found in past Friday Evening Nudes posts on this blog.

    Thanks for stopping by!

    Libhom: Ha! Yep.
