It is the way we come into the world:
A long time ago we stood that way
my friends and I
on a series of beaches in Southeast Alaska.
Only thing we had on was our Xtra-tuffs
for Bren's STRONG photography.
Last night I looked again at two photographers I believe are among the best of my generation:
Both took intensely personal pictures of the nude figure:
she of her children, her husband; he of his friends, his lovers.
I'm not going to lie. Go have a look, they are the best.
Also last night, I remembered years of drawing from the figure at art school, and drew a couple quick sketches, just out of my head, for fun.

Over at Patrice's, many more artists have unveiled the bare naked truth about Nude for this week's Drawing Challenge. Have a peek if you dare, and come join me next week as I host the next challenge.
