New Original & Prints: "Happy Trails"

Grab your guy, throw your gear in the back and just go! No destinations, no reservations.

I've been a fan of them since I was a kid, so I was pleased to discover that the VW bus/camper is as much a Vermont thing as maple syrup, foliage, covered bridges and nude swimming holes. Here is my latest...

On the Drawing Board: Hunky tree huggers.

Maybe it's a generational thing, but I've always had a fondness for the VW bus/camper, and it seems I know many others who feel the same way. When I was a kid I had a light blue toy one. Anyway, they seem to be pretty popular here in Vermont. I guess it fits in with the nature loving, tree hugging, retro hippie, easy going way of life vibe that is strong in the Green Mountain state. 

 

New Site, New Art, New Name - but still me!

I'm launching a new website!

Since I don't just do male nude paintings, I'm building a website to showcase my other works. You could say, "I'm separating the hens from the cocks." 

The new site will present my pastel paintings, prints and items of 'other' subject matter, which so far is only chickens. I'll also be moving my Pup Portrait Commissions over there. As you see I'll be using a different name, my fiancé's last name, for keeping things somewhat separated. After all, someone looking for a chicken painting or a dog portrait might get a case of the vapors seeing all the naked men on this site.

I'm thinking it might also be a good time to diversify, who knows how much longer we'll have an open and uncensored internet. 

While it's not live yet, if you are interested in this other facet of my art please go to MichaelMastertonArt.com and sign up for the newsletter and to be notified when the site is live.

A Dozen New Large Magnets!

Bigger seems to be better!

People have responded well to the new large magnets (maybe the frontal nudity has helped too!)

Anyway I just added 12 more to the collection. Some contain frontal nudity and were not even available as magnets before. I've also replenished the ones that had sold out or were on the verge. 

And the remaining small magnets are $1.25 off while supplies last.

On the Drawing Board: Getting Hairy

Using a pastel pencil to add chest hair to "The Mechanic". It's all about the the length and pattern. Keep the lines fairly short. You want to replicate the pattern the hair grows in, but still keep it a little random and disorganized to make it look natural. If it were wet you'd want to make the hair lines converge together and create trails that lead downward while still conforming to the body.
