Love the torso as portrait - "core" of personhood, flesh and spirit. Vulnerable and beautiful.

I mean, I think we can only be deconstructed up to a point and I think your art shows that.

@Bill, aren't they great blues? I'm going for a Michaƫl Borremans-feel ...
Thx Kathleen, I inaugurated my Book of Torsos today ;)to keep them all together in a (skeych)book, I love doing them as 'portraits' ... and as finger exercises for the larger work.
