→ A Contribution to American Art             History

'A Contribution to American Art History' series is part of a larger cycle of work on the pictorial representation of identity that has gone through the stages of photo realist portraits, self-portraits as projections of a variety of selves in painting, photo-montage and mixed media, and now American Art history.

You have made me wet just by looking at me since last summer!

So what if we were sitting on chairs facing each other across the room and I lift my dress slowly so you can see my underwear.

I place my finger in my mouth and suck it until it is very wet. I move my pants to one side...now you can see everything. I take my wet finger and start to touch my sex...I image that my finger is your tongue...all the time you are watching me. Would this excite you..?

What if I put my finger back in my mouth...? I can taste how excited I am...Would that excite you too..?

Would you touch yourself...? Would you let me watch...? I would like that, very much.

Would you tell me just before you come so I can take you in my mouth and taste you...?

What if I let you have the underwear I'm wearing while I write this...? Would you like that..?

I'll be thinking of you tonight....and I'll be wet...
