Reclining Nude – Red

Art is a study in lines and angles…

Darks and lights…

Color and shade

Shadows …

But most of all … curves

Curves that draw the eye

to see something different

each time a piece of art

is viewed …

appreciated …


I love all types of art

Appreciate and collect it

A love that began early

in my life when I realized

that I could not produce

my own but was happy

to enjoy that of others


This piece makes me smile

with both its whimsy and

its seriousness

An eclectic abstract nude

that leads the eye to appreciate

the female body through

new eyes and the

elegance of curves…




all allow the viewer

to develop that personal

relationship with the piece

see something different

with each viewing


attempt to get into

the artist’s mind for

the true meaning …


The art of my words

does not do justice

to the art and artist

of this piece

But …

to experience it over

and over gives

me new insight and

hopefully in time

new words for

better expression …
