Australian artist paints with breasts
New IND press ^ | 1-6-06 | ind press staff

SYDNEY: Changing colours of palette entails endless showers for an Australian artist - because she prefers to paint with her breasts.

But Di Peel, a mother of two, is producing what the market wants. Unlike recent winners of prestigious Turner Prize for modern art, Peel's works can do what paintings traditionally are supposed to do and brighten up a bare wall.

Her first canvas sold for $10, her second for $26 and currently she's busy with an order for 10 at a princely $89 each.

Peel, from Tasmania, freely admits that her chosen method doesn't allow much detail.

"They are more like abstract flowers," she told Hobart's Mercury newspaper. "But my latest piece, people say, looks like the Earth from space.

Ha!!! When I had my beer joint the girls that worked for me came in at four in the morning while I was painting to leave their marks and then autographed them. Their tips improved considerably.

Now you all know how Earl Scheib can paint a car for such a cheap price. It's all in the ability to keep labor costs down.

I'm currently unemployed. I think I'll go out tomorrow and get some paints and canvases and use my feet to do paintings and sell them. After all there are people out there who have foot fetishes, mights as well cater to that group!

Nothing is new under the sun. About a hundred years ago "avant-garde" painters were mocked for painting with their bare feet instead of hands.

Albeit technology improves each day I own no mini-compact 1911A1 cept the officers model with the stubby barrel. It has been 100% for me when I have shot it on the range but I have never packed anything small than a commander lenght 1911A1....

My CHL rig is a standard goobermint model that clark melted for me and removed the sights, filled in the dove tails etc and added a S&A Mag guide to give lenght to the grip so the heel of the butt doesn't bite my palm......

Micarta grips made for the 90 degree bottom cut of the S& A Mag guide etc etc and some other goodies I won't mention here......

Good simple point shooting rig......

Glad ya got a mini-compact that functions !

Keep me posted !

Farrah FAwcett did this for awhile shortly after her first nervous breakdown. She said so on Letterman, anyway....this was at least ten years ago. A quick web search of "Farrah Fawcett Breast painting" quickly brought me to some disgusting porn sites and so I lost interest in researching this....you're on your own if interested.

I want a mini 1911 so bad, but fear I'll get one that has function problems. A friend bought the Para Warthog. It's real nice, but not reliable enough for ccw.

What does she title her paintings? "Mammaries in Blue"? "Breast of Show"? "Jugs in Still Life"?
