~Nude Art~

Ok so today I thought I would post about something I've been thinking about recently. To me always being an artist I've come to love and appreciate "The Nude" as an art form NOT always as something that is about SEX! Our bodies are all beautiful whether you are thin or chubby, tall or short. We all have at least one part of our bodies we like.

Well as I've really gotten back into drawing I find myself looking at more figure drawing art. Not art of just an object but art done about the body. To me it can convey so much emotion! Angry, sad, frustrated, relaxed, lonely, horny. You name it! It can be show in our body language.

So yesterday I did a treasury on Etsy called I love NUDE ART! Here is a link not sure how long it will be on here for but I'll post some screen capture anyway.

It's funny to wonder what people think. I know there are many out there who would see this and be appalled! But WHY? We all have bodies why is looking at them such a bad thing. I have a painting in my office that my hubby did in College. I love the colors and the flow of the lines. It's beautiful to me. But when people have come in my office I wonder...OH MY what will they think? I also have this really awesome poster I bought years ago of a bicycle ad. If I can find it I'll post it on here. Found it! Look below.

Sorry this one is a bit crooked!

This poster is so cool! Her hair is amazing!! I love this wings on the petals! So what do you think about Nude Art? Post a comment here about what you think. I'd love to know what you think.

Keep on creating and expressing yourself through art. No matter what form you use!

My Artwork

Hi there,
For the first time ever I'm going to post some of my artwork on my blog....I've always done art but pretty much just keep it to myself. Last night I was having a bit of a night and plugged in my ipod and started drawing....these 2 drawings were the result!

The color is a bit off since I took a picture of them without using the flash so they seem a bit yellow. 6 months ago I was diagnosed with an Anxiety Disorder and sometimes when I'm feeling super stressed or anxious this is what it feels like in my head.

I've never used my art as an outlet to help with my anxiety before, so I was surprised last night when this came out. I was focused on the art and it helped me work through a rough patch.

Thanks for looking,
