Art Mirrors

Jan 21, 2018 by

In the town where I was born, the Lyric movie theater had two huge, round mirrors facing each other, one on either side of the lobby. Each mirror reflected the other endlessly, so that there appeared to be a bright, silvery tunnel in both walls leading into infinity.

Here we have Lyn Paula Russell doing much the same thing with a self-portrait. She is drawing a picture of herself drawing a picture of herself drawing a — well, you get the idea.

This is a LPR image that I did not previously have in my collection, and I am so pleased to be able to share it with you.

Enjoy!

That is all.

Pinup Friday

Jan 19, 2018 by

Recently, Errinn discovered the name of an artist who has made it his business to reproduce the pinup paintings of Gil Elvgren, albeit in a bit more graphic detail.

 

The artist is Chris Clor, and he uses a live model along with a combination of photography and technical embellishment to re-envision Elvgren’s work.

Here is his inspiration for the first image above. It’s one I used a few weeks ago to demonstrate Elvgren’s frequent showing of just a hint of bottom cleavage in his pinup paintings. As you see, Clor preferred more than just a hint.

 

And just FYI, here is the Elvgren painting (apparently re-colorized) that inspired the Chris Clor version of the maid in the January 5th Pinup Friday post. That one, also, revealed quite a bit of bottom cleft.

All for now.

In the Bleak Midwinter

Jan 16, 2018 by

One’s thoughts turn toward the warmth of azure seas …

 

 

Of the crystalline purity of full and healthful immersion in the briny depths …

 

Of the hopefulness of swimming down, down, down, only to emerge, once more …

 

In artistic triumph!

 

And then pull down her panties and spank her.

Because, winter, summer, spring, or fall, in the end (!) that’s what it’s all about with me.

Happy middle of January, everyone! (And I’m here to tell you, it has been the coldest one I’ve ever experienced in Florida.)

That is all.

Light and Shadow

Jan 14, 2018 by

 

This is a fascinating study in curves, angles, and planes, as well as in shades of light and dark.

Still, one has to wonder where it was shot.

More to the point, one has to wonder what the models thought when asked to disrobe completely in a drafty, dirty, derelict building and then present their bare lower halves to the lens.

And was this the only picture made? Did the artist and his or her models drive all the way out to wherever this is simply to capture a single and singular image? Was there only one take, or did the artist click the shutter numerous times before it came out exactly right?

Perhaps we will never know any of the answers, but I certainly won’t ever forget seeing this.

That is all.
