In this series, the only other painting with such unrealistic colors is this one. That’s not something I do a lot in my portrait work, but sometimes I do, like here and here. Below is the text from the book Crime Against Nature that goes with this image.

Some boys are never interested in partnering with girls.

Among bighorn sheep, males and females live separately, coming together only during the mating season. Throughout the year and even during the rut, rams engage in extensive homosexual behaviors with each other.
