NOT nekkid men....OK, maybe some



(2000+ year old Greek vase with a newd dude, vases by Gary Rith)
My real-life-lives-across-town-plus-he-blogs-and-paints buddy Ben (see below) and I are working on a project. Ben likes the traditionally shaped vases I make and he is a painter and wanted to go Grecian.
The Greeks of antiquity had a thing for painting newd men on vases. Ladies wore togas. Ben and I are thinking of decorating vases in the obviously much improved way of newd ladies and the men in togas. Or maybe forget the dudes entirely.
I am going over to Ben's with these tomorrow for stage two of Operation Nekkid Lady Vases.....

I'm sure many (men) will approve of your deviation from tradition. ;)

Ben is super hawt. Ben and I both feel, as dudes who play for the straight-and-lady-lovin' team, that newd ladies on vases is very appealing. Newd dudes? Who wants to paint that?

Do you want to sell? Okay then...nekkid men!
