The Bear Also Rises, oil on canvas panel 12x12 inches by Kenney Mencher
Lately I've been working with archetypes of masculinity. I guess you could say archetypes are the same as stereotypes. One of the things that's really struck me about this new era in gay culture is the fact that it embraces a lot of different types of male beauty.
I love the fact that an older hairy guy, like myself, is considered sexy by some men and women. Some of the stereotypes are breaking down and this is making many people more comfortable with their bodies and how they perceive the ideas of sexy and beautiful.
This is a standard size and will easily fit in an inexpensive frame which can be bought at photo shops, stationary stores, and art supply stores. You could probably find a cool vintage frame here on Etsy.
