Lovely neon line work outlining rears and legs! The one closest to the viewer in foreground must be female as the lines are rounder...

thanks so much Kay.
I realized after it was done that there is ambiguity in gender on this.
and so it shall remain...

"simple" striping turned out to be a challenge as there is no way to correct anything. once you start with that line you have to hope you got it right the first time.
Took an hour of playing with reds & blues to create the background, two weeks for it to dry and about 5 minutes to create the lines... and 20 years to gain the confidence to try it.

It's so out there it's hard to process. Ouch you broke my head :)
I can go with the rears and legs. It's really a sweet painting. They are together.

The painting IS out there for me as it is for Christopher. However, I love the boldness of it!! I really like the what you said about it taking "20 years to gain the confidence to try it." I understand that so very well, like my tagline quote reads, "Creativity takes courage."
