Bathing Feet

- by Kristi Schueler

This week's theme: The Pin-Up

A pin-up is an image that contains elements of a theme or tells some kind of story. The pin-up artist's subjects are women and the Pin-Up Girl has become a classic. Depicted in a provocative manner, these women are occasionally nude but are more often dressed in skimpy, form-revealing clothes. The Pin-Up has grown to include the not only the classic style of Vargas, but also a realistic style favoured by some contemporary artists. The artists of this genre have also begun creating with the tools of the digital age as well as in more traditional media.

Art: Bathing Feet by Artist Kristi Schueler

This piece was developed for a collaborative book with the theme of blue. Blue is cold, crisp and beautiful - all feelings I wished to convey in this piece.

The final image is the result of marrying images from several sources including public-domain images from NASA, a vintage photograph and my own photography.

The back reads
"Bathing feet with
Sparkling stars of heaven's
Deep blue sky
