Au Lido

I just completed this painting, which is inspired by one of my favorite artists, George Barbier. I loved the idea of making a newer, even gayer version of his piece, "Au Lido," which is below:

My painting is based on a photo I took a few years ago in which I am making out with my boyfriend, Leif.

And finally, the finished painting:

I think I want to make another, larger version, with more figures, and more nudity (I love the tension created when there are a couple of nude figures among a larger number of clothed boys).  But I am very happy with how it came out.  You can  check it out on my ebay store here:

Tomorrow I plan on adding another post with more of Barbier's work, who has influenced me a lot.
