Okay, I know that some of you are here looking for "That" kind of website, sorry this isn't a post like that. It isn't a blog like that either, you dirty dirty person. Some might have the noble intentions of informing me that my site has been hacked, sorry, still not the case.
This work inspired me to draw the human form. I wanted to at least achieve, in a tiny way, some art like my artistic hero. And considering my favorite piece of his is the statue David, you might understand now why I am much better at the male form than the female, I have practiced one a great deal more than the other.
That all said. Why I write this today is because I recently got something that a friend sent back to me that I have always wanted. Years ago I was watching a movie and the characters were in Rome on vacation. In one scene I saw a vendor selling tiny replica statues of David. They aren't all that exact or accurate, but I didn't care I wanted one. Over the years I have looked for it, you cannot find many here in the states. And I couldn't seem to get a friend to remember to bring one back when they visited Italy. That is until a few days ago. I finally got my tiny statue of David and couldn't be happier. I don't decorate with images of naked men, and unless I get more of this particular one, this will likely be the last, but it will stand in my inspiration room among the other unique artifacts as a testament to one of my earliest inspirations.
