TNI, episode 3

And this, I'm thinking, is my boy Cheney.

Suitable for painting. I like the teeth. Disregard all that Getty Images stuff on the nose. I'll get rid of that for you.

Plus an important update: Because my urge to paint "Nipple Cheney" is so high, I may just paint him second and wrap the installation around a corner like this:

That's "Pornography with Nipples" on the left, weighing in at roughly seven feet by five, and that's "Nipple Cheney" on the right, occupying the usual four feet by five.

What this does, and which the illustration so ably illustrates, is it allows the two paintings to sit next to eachother comfortably, since both their vertical dimensions (five feet) and the spacing of the nipple grid will match.

This is them going around a corner. Can you see what I'm talking about?

And, although I'm not one to pat myself on the back too aggressively, I think the graphic rendition of the nipples in the illustration is particularly strong.

To describe us as fired up is to minimize the implication of the phrase. Whatever that means.
