John Currin


The painting in the background of one of the life-drawings below is HONEYMOON NUDE by John Currin. I came across his work a couple years ago at a show at the Whitney in New York. He's a fine painter & his odd, big-boobed, long necked women look like porn stars painted by Botticelli!

This is a great blog!
Any reason why it isn't updated for almost a year? Never mind, there is enough eye candy to keep me going, and I haven't even started with checking your links yet :)
