Artist In Her Own Words
Art Nude by Tallulah
My Web site went up after viewing all the nudes on the Net and thinking,
'That's not me, or how I feel... those are
having access to a model, I used myself and a mirror when I needed a pose.
The area where I lived at the time of the commissioned portraits was against
any nudity WHATSOEVER. I would do a nude and put it away so that
no one ever saw it. For years, I did this. It was all in good practice,
at least for myself. I moved away, after having a stroke, at the age of
42. I fully recovered, thankfully, from the stroke, then I made some profound
discoveries from this experience: life is too short to waste. So I chose
to paint the subject I knew the best, myself and women.
I only had used myself as a model for the nudes (from the past), I found
that when I wanted to draw or paint some emotion, I still resorted to using
myself as the model. All the drawings are me... symbolically anyway.
My experience with painting portraits of people gave me with the skills
I needed to change features so they don't all
like me, though people who know me will tell you which ones actually look
guy's fantasy woman. How could a man paint what a woman feels-- impossible!'
I was sure I would get the stereotypical reaction, and for a while I was
placed/ranked with the pin-up guys as far as artists go.
didn't last long, thankfully. I was wrong about my expected reaction to
my art. Women wrote by the dozens. They actually identified with
the feelings I portrayed. Amazing! I continue to draw and paint,
posting a new piece every month. And from there, as they say, every picture
tells a story."
