Ankles showing...reported. Sorry Terry, it had to be done :)

Grateful the artistry doesn’t reveal Frank Langella girth......

New in today . . . THOSE LIPS, THOSE EYES (1980) by Robert McGinnis.
 
Last time I posted a movie poster painting art day I got myself two successive warnings (and a few months period of being unable to log into my account) for posting a painting that was widely seen around 1963 movie theatres by people of all ages.
 
As there's a fair bit of female flesh on display in my new McGinnis painting, I'm taking no chances by posting an image here - as god knows what kind outrage or upset it might cause?
 
Here's a link:
 

Cool. I would like a McGinnis painting one day. That one on Heritage recently was tempting.

Out of curiosity, what poster got the warning? I didn't see anything bad in your gallery.

THE VICTORS, 1963.  The original thread got deleted and I got a warning, so I did a follow-up censored' thread and that also got deleted and I got a second warning.  The painting, by Renato Fratini, was plastered over UK cinema front-of-house displays at time of release and was in plain view of people of all ages.  The image is suggestive (I don't think deliberately so) and open to misinterpretation, but in no way explicit.  Not sure if it was something a moderator picked up on, or was pointed towards.  Either way, I can live with the deleted threads and warnings, even if I think they were unnecessary and heavy-handed.

Terry: Italians are not allowed on this board and cannot be mentioned by name or geographic location.

It's regrettable, but we all must adjust to The New Reality.

"Peoples and Animals of Greater Europe" is allowed.

Banned. Again.

Just looked at that and was shocked that it got pulled.  I get the suggestiveness of it but, wow.

BTW, beautiful piece by McGinnis!  (thumbsu

Thanks.

I thought it was really pathetic and smacked of power politics being played out on a small scale.  Or maybe that time of the month . . . (shrug)

From the look on the soldier’s face, he wasn’t too thrilled with the effort.

That's funny. I didn't even notice when checking your gallery.
