Taken and the Gay Games in 2010 in Germany, a friend of mine brought over the photo and I fell in love with the composition. The way the muscles are moving under the skin, the skin tone, the pyramidal composition and the colors. It was a pleasure to go back and paint a realistic figurative work since I spent the first 10 years doing almost nothing but life drawing. Ahhhh the exposed human form. Nothing like it.
