about Christopher Ryan
A sprinkle of sunlight, and late evening shadows. Fall leaves, moss and lush grass. A splash of water, sandy shores, dark rich farm soil, sparkling white salt flats and earthy tones of the desert. Glacier boulders, rocky embankments, water and wind swept crevices. Crisp winter wind and saturated summer air. Hard cold, steel, brick, and glass.... These are my inspirations.
The muse with her red, blonde, chocolate brown, and raven black hair. Soft shoulders, graceful arms, ample breasts, and the curve of her hips. A powerful backside, firm thighs and shapely calves. Porcelain white skin, freckled, sun kissed brown, and pure ebony. Twisting, turning, contorting in sun and shadow......these are my motivations.
