I referenced a photograph by @nadavkander I found in a beautiful new publication by @panandthedreammag .

As I continue to observe and pursue the nude in paintings, I think it's weird that an actual nude photo (the kinds I've been sharing of myself with some edits so I don't get kicked off of social media) can cause an uproar in the name of morality and actual nude humans even more so. But then a painting or sketch of the same subject can be hung in million dollar rooms with  people who'd normally be in an uproar but who stand in front of the work talking all open-minded and using language that sounds so artistic. It's weird, those distances, and those levels of discourse.

This exploration of mine ... one of the most profound revelations I've been having is that I'm not just one thing at a time. I'm many things all at one. Clothed. Naked. Proper. Raunchy. Mother. Goddess. Clean. Filthy. Behaved. Rebellious. Feminine. Masculine. And it's now that I finally feel the freedom to embrace the power of all that.
