... tastefully nude...

... my dear friend Tammi of Tammi's World is worrying about decorating her boudoir.. well, I initially went over and suggested landscapes in her comments.... after all, you really can't go wrong with a good, solid landscape painting... but now I'm having second thoughts...

... see, some friends of mine over in the Olde Country collect art... more specifically, ancient signed prints of Russell Flint's work... now, old Russell was a man after my own heart and I loved his art at first sight... his shtick was buxom farmer's daughters that were stripped to the waist... bonny lasses sporting curving hips, stout arms, sweeping mounds of cleavage and pert, unerringly upturned nipples...

... great stuff, to be sure... the women lazily casting their eyes downward towards a fountain, pail of water, or frolicking puppy... while their nipples point skyward to heaven.. as if trying to direct the gaze of the viewer upwards towards the just rewards that such chaste and plain girls were sure to reap in the afterlife... a kind of topless spirituality, if you will...

... and all of the scenes are painted in the soft, honeyed tones of the watercolors of a Man enjoying Life... here, check this one out....

... see, I'm telling you.. the paintings just scream good taste... just plain scream it...

... and if I may be so bold, I would highly recommend this one and this one as the perfect decorations for a bedroom wall...

UPDATE!!... on a slightly related note, I found out today that I am Number 4 on google when searching for the term "I love nipples!"... coincidence?... fate?... you be the judge....

Okay - very nice stuff... problem is... I don't think Tammi's into lookin' at girls. I'm just sayin'...

Got any suggestions of some artfully depicted guys??? ;-)

Buy that girl a fireman's calendar, she can just tack the pictures up all over the place ;)

.. wait.. you guys are missing the point... a single woman's bedroom should be decorated with subdued paintings of tasteful nudes that stoke the entering Lothario's coals... that's all I'm saying...

Bullshitted by Eric on January 23, 2006 06:20 PM

Whatever... "the entering Lothario's coals" should already be stoked by the time he gets there....

I'm with Oddy -- can't we find an artist that does really great half naked firemen? :D

... good lord... enough with the damn firemen already... a guy who walks into Tammi's bedroom to find naked firemen all over the wall is going to leave.. coals stoked or not...

Smoooooove.

When I repanel the Library at Chez Elisson, perhaps I should use a fine wallpaper in just such a pattern...

I'm with the girls on this one. I'm not seeing these paintings on Tammi's wall. Nope. I'm thinking paintings of half nekkid cowboys... ala that calendar!

Well, you girls would be wrong. The human body is a thing of beauty and I actually enjoy a "tastefully done" nude. I had a statue and I'll be damned if I can remember who did it - but it was of a couple in a "loving embrace". It was in my room on the edge of my dresser. One of my favorite pieces. It got broken between Florida and here. But the whole room? Noooo, that might be a bit of over kill for me.....

My nipples are stiff... upturned... engorged...

...lurking...

.. Jesus Christ.... put those things away, Acidman...

Well, if there are no half nekkid cowboy pix, I'll have to reconsider visiting, Tam! I was really looking forward to seeing that daggum calendar!

Hey, maybe Eric can decorate the Straight White House with them. I'm sure the Straight White Wife won't mind... ;-)

Hmmm. I'm with Bou, bring on the half-nekkid cowboys and not them Brokeback Mountain types either!

Now, as far as stoking said coals . . . I, personally, don't need nudes in my room, tasteful or otherwise, I do a pretty good stoking all by myself! ;)

Bullshitted by Oddybobo on January 24, 2006 08:32 AM

Ok, just make it cowboys and cowgirls... in tastefully nekkid poses together. ;-)
