Explicit Content
This book explores those highly personal permutations of pleasure with quotes from real people accompanied by a watercolor portrait of their pleasure part. Pleasure Portraits offer a brief and intimate glimpse at the individual experience of human pleasure. Pleasure starts from the root, in the feminine and masculine, and in all the shapes and colours in between. The aliveness inside us is the creative foundation for all that is; the spark and source of our power centers, that passionate inspiration. These pleasure portraits are all so uniquely organic, matching the depths that pour out from the people who share them. My inspiration for this project is for a universal collective to be seen and the flavours of diversity to be unconditionally celebrated, accepted and nurtured. A pleasure portrait is not about gender, race, age or sexual orientation. They surpass labels, projections, judgments and focus on the purest root of all humanity which is to experience life's richest pleasures. Enjoy! "I haven't got the words to thank you enough. My heart is beating so hard. Thanks for seeing deep into my soul. Thank you for all the emotions you give me with your paintings. Thank you for helping me discover the depths of my soul. I love the work. I love you." ~ Michele "You will always have my continued support. I love what you do. I'm not an artist so I don't know the words to use but I love the way you see things." ~ Lindsay "I just wanted to reach out to let you know what a huge confidence boost your art has given me. And sharing it with people I love and trust has helped me so much, it's such a rush when someone I never expected to let see this side of me asks me if they mind me sharing the reference pics too. I love letting my guard down lately. I've let more and more nakedness into my life and I'm starting to free myself sexually and stop feeling guilty for being a sexual being. Thanks again for your art." ~ Zach
