I haven't been to art museums outside of DC in quite a while, so I enjoyed finding inspiring art online, and wanted to pass on some great findings. I love the human form as art, like these two pieces by Portuguese artist Christina Troufa,
and these two nudes by Crawfurd Adamson.
or this drawing by Michael Jon Angel.
This Bernini marble sculpture takes my breath away.
I love the paragraph I found with this sculpture : “ I hope you, too, thought this was a picture of an actual human being. The fingers that slightly indent the flesh of a woman look real, but it is a 400 year old marble sculpture” Bernini Sculpture – Pluto and Proserpina (1621-1622).
My son, Michael, is an accomplished artist in his figure work like this favorite of mine done with pastels, conte crayon and charcoal on orange paper.
Bethany loves this piece of Michael's art and asked him if she could have it to hang in her house. But, she said her eyes kept only going to the enormous nipples, so he altered them slightly for her benefit.
How do you feel about hanging nudes in your home? Would you, could you?
