Illustration Friday - HIDE


With her biggest secret behind her and nothing else to hide, Jane felt remarkably light and free.

This is my submission for IF, and I do believe I have covered (or uncovered) more than one definition of the theme word here.

This wee 8"x 10" acrylic on canvas painting is based upon a figure in Picasso's 1920 oil and charcoal on wood piece, 'By the Sea'.

I see you're having lots of fun with this series. It's been brewing for awhile I guess and now that you have a chance to tackle it it's coming thick and fast. You're being *way* more productive than me right now, though I am enjoying my swims... :)

Quit reading and get back to work!!

She's spectacular!
I am so glad that I followed your comment "I imagine you must smile when you're working on your drawings"...I do, and wondered who it was that was so perceptive.
I loved looking at your work and reading your hysterical blog to your fabulous daughter. Thank you SO much for the hearty chuckle.

Lovely. Certainly very Picasso-like - a perfect style to portray "nothing to hide". Thank you.

Captures the theme perfectly. And what a great poster this would make especially displayed at the entrance of a nude beach.
