NEW: Prints of the above artwork now available!

Also purchase a bigger jpg version to see how it is made!

85% of madness, a fantastic model, 15 liters of acrylic.

Model: Caroline Madison.

Taken with my new Canon EOS 5D Mark II. I love it!
As you can see in the making, I've used different light
sources, that's why the shadows go in different directions.
I need to get more powerful spotlights for my studio...

If you wish, you can view this video interview in which I
explain the philosophy behind "Flesh and Acrylic":

The above picture and other images from the "Flesh and Acrylic"
series have been published in The Telegraph in December 2011.

The Lotion of Passion

A poem by Peter S. Quinn

The lotion of passion is here with you
In the purest of white skin and the dark
With the feelings of spring and water true
That in to each your emotions will spark
A flower of love that comes like spring
To sooth every cell of your skin nerve
And on to your feelings always shall sing
To accomplish its youthful and its verve

A dove of the sky and your summer mood
Something for everyone to feel good
And complete the new appearance that hooks
Be to your skin like a nourishing food
And always win through in each a-la-mode
To go with knowledge of nature and looks

Starting with an all white canvas has made your use of viberante colors transform this into an outstanding eye catcher work of art. Finding a model willing to aid in this project is also no easy task. I would love to see much more of this work, please do not stop here let your talant keep going on. Do you have more of this to share with us? I have a personal preferance for this type of work and would enjoy seeing much more if possiaable. Good luck in your future works of art, from a greatful admirerer of colorful women.

Very powerful use of posing and dynamics in the paint, it feels almost visceral. Which is interesting considering the vibrancy of the colours you've chosen. In different colours I think it might have quite a macabre feel.

I love how her pose and the paint on her body flow into the paint and structure of the background. Beautiful.
