I have found throughout my various [artistic] careers[s], being an artist requires the willingness to be flexible in order to hone ones' craft.
I see things differently.
The 'Nude Men Naked' and 'The Zoo' galleries are an attempt by me to open the door to the appreciation and democratization of the male nude. It's been a long time coming. The way I see it, you work hard, you pay for home, you should hang art that you admire without question or shame.
If my work makes you happy, then I've done my job.
