To Paint A Man

To Paint A Man

Following The Real Man project, I thought the next step was to paint a man. Now, I was not altogether wrong with that idea; in fact, "to paint a man" is perfectly correct.

Only we're not painting a man like in an oil portrait. Oh no ... We are painting on the man. Of course ... obvious once you know ... and oh, so very primal.

You can paint a man, and you can write on a man too.

More wants to be done, find out where it leads, what the next step might be.
