In The Eye of The Beholder

A friend of mine asked me today, why a majority of my art is nothing but females. A question that I get a lot of times. And the answer is, I don't know.

I guess that over the years, I've watched people. Paid attention to their actions, their expressions, their being. And in the end, I find woman are more intuitive to show things that men can't.

Though woman have been known as "Life Givers", woman also have a way of showing more ranges of emotion then men. Another question that is asked a lot is what's your favorite part of the body of the other sex. My answer is always the same. The eyes.

When I look at a woman, the first thing I do is look into their eyes. Not just at them to see what color they are. But into them.  The eyes have always been said to be the window to that persons soul. A lot can be told about a person, if you can read their eyes.

When I do any art piece, i'm always looking for some kind of emotion. Be it happy, sad, indifferent. Rage, lust, passion, it's there. And the thing that I have found out over the years is, a woman can show one or more of these at the same time and not know it.

Don't take me wrong, I'm not some guy with insecure or infidelity issues. I like to look at a woman naked as much as the next man. But I see more. I see more range of emotions and expression in a woman with clothes on as I do with them off. Sometimes, I like to see a woman dressed more so then naked due to this fact.

Women hold power. Not weight lifting power, but power in general. The power to heal, hurt and love. The power to to bend things at will and the power to seduce all by looking. This is why I find the eyes the most attractive. Fluid movement of emotions.

Over the years, I've had to sketch both men and woman, clothed and naked for art classes. More time then not, I found myself starring the the lines, curves and the radiance given off by the woman then I did the man. And it always showed in the piece I was doing. Not some pornographic image. But shades of color, line thickness and shapes.

To be honest, I don't know why. I just find woman more inviting to create and establish something that others may not see. Call me nuts, call me what you may wish. But i guess the adage is true. That beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
