Title: On Playing DoctorArtist: Dobson, JohnCreated: 2014Materials: Acrylic on Vinyl mounted on foam - UnframedMovement: OneArtCondition: ExcellentSize: 12" X 16"Location: Artist's Private EstatePrice: $36,000.00Description: Reclining female nude painted in pinks and reds, radiating her natural beauty.Artist Remarks: This work is an OneArt Nude painting. When I was growing up, I often role played as a doctor with my girlfriends. Yes, it was very much a part of my self-educational experiences concerning sex. As far as I and my girlfriends were concerned, it was great fun. I recall saying: OK young lady. Let's check and see if you are moist enough for your next injection. I painted this reclining nude in colors of pink to red, not to offend anyone, but to simply point out that I find females to be so very beautiful. I believe woman are smart, and great fun to be with - and yes, especially when injecting. Back then I learned to respect girls, and in doing so, I learned to respect myself. I painted this work, because I see there is a lot of rape and violence against woman today. It's just not right. I sincerely believe our society is basically frustrated and angry. We seem to take it all out on ourselves by disrespecting each other, and treating each other with inappropriate verbal and physical abuse. Somehow, I think we let our society down by teaching sex education all wrong. Our sexuality is literally being taught with kid gloves, with boys and girls taught separately, and in keeping with the idea that sex is dirty. Sure, handing out condoms has helped diminish the spread of STDs. But is that teaching respect? Can't we take the responsibility of teaching our youth about what real beauty is, and about tenderness, warmth, laughter, and that life, itself, is fragile, yet so very special?
