Original artwork description:

A ribald scene of carnal pleasures-in-the-making is here best understood not as actually taking place, but rather as a dreamlike scenario of the competing fantasy ruminations of the prone female observer, whose splayed posterior leads the eye into the painting from the bottom left corner of the canvas. Facing her directly is a two woman sexual dynamo positioned strictly for her pleasure as she is beckoned to join in. Sufficiently intrigued, she nonetheless turns her head left to take in a male figure, standing erect and holding himself temptingly, making it known he is ready and willing if she were to choose him over the female ensemble. As the reclining woman recognizes and weighs her two competing choices, and therefore, inclinations, she becomes a stand-in for the rest of us, who in our fantasy lives free from responsibility to standards and protocol, might let our minds slip and wander in and out of convention when it comes to the sexual stimulation that keeps us interested and willing to join lustily in life's pageant.

Influences, among others, include Max Beckmann, Edvard Munch, Bob Thompson, George McNeil, Richard Diebenkorn, David Park, Francesco Clemente, R.B. Kitaj and Willem de Kooning.
