- my Yahoo! Group (where you can see my latest pictures and stories and join my mailing list).


There's a link in the sidebar here to a small gallery of vanilla drawings by me (Mitchell) (gallery last updated Feb 2018).
If you have problems with the link please read this notice.

Silence ......

Silence is precious by Vish Studio

I love pictures like this, not just for the attractive young man who is it's subject, but because it shows a commonplace gesture in a gently erotic context, inviting the viewer to interpet the scenario and compose his own story for the picture.

This gesture seems to assign leadership and knowingness to the model while the open shirt and flyaway collar seem to imply self confidence and an adventurous spirit.

Such power in a simple photograph! It's an image I could envisage transplanting into my own artwork.
