Description chalk pastels, 2003Decided to create a multi session very detailed work of Greg.During the pose, Greg fell asleep and had an 'excited' dream.When I noticed his erection, I quickly began rendering it.But as I was about half way through, Greg's member moved from the depicted'10 O'Clock' position to a '2 O'Clock' position.Frustrated by the movement of a vital element, I had to wake Greg and ask him to hold his throbber with fingers out of view at the former position.The background is an accurate portrayal of my former Miami Studio.The addition of the blue jeans was suggestedby one of my best long term friends.Are the results worth it?
