About The Artwork

Yet another in my nudity series... Once I went surfing at a beach called New Chums, Whangapoa, coromandel, in New Zealand. It was summer and there was no one else at the beach. Or so we thought. We were just sitting out the back waiting for some waves when out from the bushes came for beautiful young women totally naked. After that, I couldn't surf properly. I was far too distracted. This is something I will never forget because it has never happened since. It's amazing to think that the naked body can have such an effect on a young boy. Or is it?
