This painting was a departure from what I normally like to paint. This painting was inspired by a photo posted by another artist Eli Salas @elisalasthethird. I just had to paint my interpretation of the human body and how artistic the naked body can be. This painting toils between vulnerability and confidence. When it relates to how I view my body I have never been comfortable with what my body is and how the world sees it. So when I saw this photo I felt confident and was able to see the beauty in me, because being vulnerable is the most powerful artistic tool you can have.
