on the drawing board: domestic god

I've always incorporated nature into many of my works, but of late (the past few years) I've become aware, and then more deliberate, of giving a nod to the environment and our connection to and hopefully preservation of it.  You can see it in works like "Buck", "Bare In the Woods", "Encounter", and especially "Melt".  Sexy men are still at the core of my work but having a domestic god trade in the electric dryer for a clothesline is my subtle nod to mother nature...and gives new ideas to the phrase 'hung out to dry.'

Michael,
The other nice thing about clotheslines is getting to see what the stud down the street wears under those jeans. Feeds the fantasies! LOL
