Lustfully Yours, 1999
Oil on canvas

36 x 48 in.

As a young man I was interested in why something so natural to our being was repressed or weaponized. One night at a strip club, my good friend took a Polaroid with the porn star, Nikki Dial. This painting is that picture which she signed.

I was amazed at how she was completely naked in a room full of men, yet seemed to hold more power than the Pope holding mass on Christmas Eve.
