There are many tastefully artistic nudes here on this site but yours are not. Yours are slutty nudes which speaks volumes about you and what kind of a person you are or more importantly, aren't. Have a nice day!

To Anonymous-
Thanks for visiting again- I see your "filthy filter" is not on when you clicked from the Daily Painter's website to view this beautiful semi nude portrait here on my blog. Yeah my nudes do speak volumes about me- VIVACIOUS, COLORFUL, SEXY, HOT, FUN, FILLED WITH LOVE + LIFE! as for slutty- a little sometimes + I think that's a good thing!

Whaa?? Slutty? Haven't we all at one time been without our shirts? would that then make us all sluts?

I, for one, love this and all your work - they are celebrations of the female form.

Party on!

Hilarious!!!! Love all nudes myself, but then again, I'm a major you-know-what!

Its always strange to follow an insult with "Have a nice day"...which I'm sure you had, being a wild-willy woman..red hot...adorable, sexy, daring, just to name a few things I do know about you. Tasteful generally=BORING & REPRESSED in my book, the complete opposite of art or the artist

Anonymous sounds like an uptight Mama's boy who probably can't get it up.

Hi G!
Just remember what Brendan Behan once said: 'Critics are like eunuchs in a harem: they know how its done. They've seen it done every day, but they're unable to do it themselves'
Your work is beautiful. Keep them coming.
Peter

Thanks Dawn, Diana, Peter-
I always think that when a person is writing a negative comment, it is a direct reflection of themselves. Peter's comment states the same view with a much more intriguing and clever example and so elegantly stated....

Peter Donahoe said...

Ah now thank you G...but it wasn't me, it was Bold Brendan himself...

Art is never chaste. It ought to be forbidden to ignorant innocents, never allowed into contact with those not sufficiently prepared. Yes, art is dangerous. Where it is chaste, it is not art.

~Pablo Picasso.

Therefore... Anonymous is but an unwitting Ignorant Innocent--and a cowardly one at that. Leave it to Picasso to speak the word of Truth. Evviva Gretchen (and all the wise men and women who know, love and admire her)!
