This was painted sometime in the 1980s at some open life drawing session, in Boston before or after I went to Massachusetts College of Art. I used to go to life drawing sessions all over the city once a week. It was a nice way to keep my hand in and meet other artists. It is one of my favorite nudes. The colors are considered to be very "libra". My friend from childhood would always say that libras think pastel pink and blue go together but they don't. Well I beg to differ being a libra myself.
Zoe Zuniga has worked as a freelance illustrator in Boston, San Francisco, and Los Angeles since 1986. Zoe graduated with a Bachelors degree from Massachusetts College of Art, Boston.She shows her paintings in Northern California and is working on a line of toys and art for kids. Zoe writes a blog for other creative people to learn to get out of their own way, stop stopping themselves and start being more creative. "I began painting as a child because I grew up in a creative environment with a beatnik, radical, composer-playwright-puppeteer for a mom. There was a creativity ethic. This was the hippy era. It was not cool to have a conventional job, and money was out of fashion. By the age of ten I had a small subscription of 4 friends for one of my comic books and a serialized spy novel i was writing. I would send this from our hotel rooms in Hong Kong and other stops along the way during our round the world puppet tour. I have been drawing and making things since I was three and have not stopped since."
