Erotic Small Town 12"x12"
12"x12" Acrylic, Paper & Color Pencil on Birch Board (Framed in a Birch Floater)
I freely played with colored pencil on top of acrylic to make dynamic shapes straight from my head. I sent the finished image to my Mentor. She said it was very erotic with "various and sundry sexy turn-ons". I immediately got embarrassed and felt exposed. Sex is not a topic I generally choose to publicly discuss. I didn't want for others to see it and think the same thing. I realized how uncomfortable I am sharing what I consider a very private thing. Plus I was ashamed that I didn't even see it after it it was done. I shelved the painting. Then I thought "Why?" Why the embarrassment? Why do I feel shame? Is it because it is proof that my subconscious has more sexuality than I am aware? Is it because I didn't see it at all until a third party pointed it out? This was the first time I realized that more is shown in my paintings than I realize.
