Naked on the Beach

Naked on the Beach

This piece started out in my mind as a naked man in the shore break. Naked man in the shore break? Hmmmm, I needed a model. I asked a waiter I knew if he wanted to pose for me but based on his reaction I have a feeling this proposition was taken the wrong way. Without a model, I racked my brain trying to figure out how to make the figure in the shore break of my painting appear life-like. I had a small statue in my home that I thought would work in my current pinch - I photographed him and added him to the piece. 

As the actual piece came together, I began to appreciate the duality that jumped out at me from this piece. I love the classical, old-school feel of the statue, a representation of the old-world view of art, mixing in with my modern, mixed media piece.
