This was a relaxing bodypainting and photography set to do on one of my favorite models to paint. I suffer from moments of social anxiety and every time I paint her she throws head phones in and checks out. So it makes it easy on me. Ha.
I have no problem talking with people when I paint. Most of the time the canvas is chatty and I listen. But I have moments when I am freaking out inside and just want to paint. It’s easy when all I gotta listen to is my music while she sporadically naps.
I like how it turned out and how the lines and colors flowed around her body. They both just seemed to match.
Enjoy and if you wanna see the remaining images of this set, they have been uploaded to my patrons at FleshandColor Members
I found an old time-lapse of a blacklight UV glow paint piece I did. It’s simple, amateur and neat. I dig it. Do me a favor and subscribe to my Youtube channel if you liked this. They’re gonna get better.
“Till Death” – A Self Portrait: Our Saturday date night. This was a spontaneous UV black light bodypaint piece. We (Lana Chromium and I) spent a couple of hours bodypainting each other “anatomically enough” to pull off the effect. I adjusted colors a bit to remove some of the black light blue and bumped the contrast to blacken out what skin was visible for the illusion. Her hair was glowing as well, so that helped.
This was a pretty big deal for me. I have been a bodypainter for 20 years, grossly overweight until I was in my 30’s and until now, was terrified at the notion of being the subject of my own art. Until her…
The leg and arms crossing isn’t a hard effect, especially in black light and you plan your pose. Very minor Post production.

So, yeah. It’s only been 10 years since I updated this website. If you tried to navigate it in the past few years of the mobile world, please accept my apologies. I am not a web designer, but I built it myself with my limited knowledge.
So the way this will work is like most websites. When new work is added, a blog will be posted with details. Easy peasy.
So, enjoy the new site. It is brand new. I am learning. And, expect it to be as organic as bodypainting. Gonna be changing as I teak here and there.
