Naked wood nymph

Well, wood nymphs are always nude anyway so it hardly needs saying.

Artists have to have an excuse to paint beauty, and mythological subjects provide such an excuse. Why there has to be a pretext is an interesting question, and perhaps there doesn't have to be a pretext, although with the dropping of the pretext a lot of modern art has dropped beauty as well.

The little oil painting of a wood nymph is now finished. It is for sale. Contact me for details.
