COLBY, LET LOOSE AND NUDE . . . IN THE ART GALLERY


Purely thanks to the tremendous bull testicles of "Friend of Colby" and fellow artist Wolfgang Fletcher, who had the chutzpah to ask a gallery owner if I could strip down to take a photo in front of this piece by artist Leo Villareal, were we able to capture the portrait above, "Colby as Christ, giving the Byzantine sign of benediction".

You may know Villareal best for his tunnel of LED lights, the "Multiverse" at the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC.  To see more of his work, check out his website HERE.

COLBY'S COCK, A PORTRAIT OF ITS OWN



It's about time the single most important appendage on my humble habitus got a portrait all its own.  No, not my shoulder-- though a perpetual childhood frustration (I couldn't say "shoulder", only soldier until I was 15), a single shoulder hardly qualifies as an appendage. . . No, not my shoulder, though that gets attention too, my penis!

Portraits of my body parts courtesy of Texas artist Wolfgang Fletcher.  Fletcher painted this series to help raise funding to fly me home to Houston for a collaboration together sometime this Fall.

Stay tuned for more details as they develop. . .  :-)
