And at this point I wonder... did you make a conscious decision to be naked throughout? Or did it just happen that way..?

Is my lack of skill in drawing clothing now so apparent?

In truth, to put this out here is to give myself. I can't do that in blog posts or comments threads, or even real life, but in these words and pictures I can escape my false skin and I am naked.
Yeats wrote, "Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths [...] I would spread the cloths under your feet, but I, being poor, have only my dreams. I have spread my dreams under your feet. Tread softly for you tread on my dreams...". Well, I would add, tread softly, for you tread on my skin.
