Chuck Miller, nudes & cows
Ok, I grew up and still live in Texas. I have an extremely hard time showing my nudes in small town Texas. All I ever hear is that… “I think your work is beautifully, but you know this is … And we don’t want to offend anyone, so no you can’t show that work here.”
I have been a huge fan of Teresa Elliott for years and I feel challenged to depict cows with the same detail and beauty that she has achieved. Not to mention the fact her painting sell in the mid 40k range. So until I find a viable market for my nudes I will continue to also paint cows. I find both equally challenging probably because they are both naked, raw and honest.
