This gallery includes nudes plus figurative works such as photo montages of nude pixies. Of course, every artist likes painting nudes. When people ask me what I paint, I always answer, "From nudes to newts." A lot of the time, the nudity part of the painting is minimal. To me, the suggestion of nudity is more interesting. The nude form is the ultimate landscape because of the shapes and contours of the body. When I'm painting a nude, I'm conscious of how so much of the landscape repeats the shapes in the human form. For instance, driving through a valley is reminiscent of the slope from arm to waist to hip of a beautiful woman.
