This piece helped me to learn a lot more about gray, something that was mightily helpful two years later when I was painting this portrait. To learn more about the making of Girls just wanna have fun, watch this vlog. Below is the text from the book Crime Against Nature that goes with this image—the book can be read and purchased here.

Sometimes girls have sex with girls.

Both male and female bottlenose dolphins participate in homosexual exchanges and, usually, they do so more than participating in heterosexual encounters. Females seek out clitoral stimulation and other nonprocreative sexual interactions from partners of both sexes.
