apologies if it is a resubmit (memory’s going !)

Hi Eros, struggling to find new images for you at the moment :) ….so a rework,
cheers, John Stevens
Hiya John.. boy, I’ve been missing your talented works. Love this painting; the earthy tones in contrast to the flowing white bed sheet makes the whole image pop. I love the fact that you opted for an unabashed show of pubic hair, as well.. now-a-days, it seems many artists tend to echo the established societal stereotypes & preferences when it comes to depicting body hair. It gets downright frustrating to see the majority of nude females completely void of hair. You’re awesome, my friend. Hope life is well w you. ~ Eros

Hiya John.. always do so enjoy receiving pieces from you. I do enjoy how the lighting for this piece perfectly guides the eyes from center on downward. Hope you are well & as always, a big thanks to you for the contribution. ~ Eros

small sketch (done with a hangover… may even have already sent this….  ;-)) New Year’s day… must get some coffee before I paint ANYTHING ELSE,

CHEERS JOHN XX

Lol.. you really make this gal wanna come & party with you, when it counts John  ;)  As usual, these latest efforts are just beautiful.. I love the soft, healthy figure of your muse for the day image & what a fantastic job on the light reflecting sheen of the muse in the lower, night piece. Thanks so much, my buddy. ~ Eros
