In this sensual watercolor painting, her pose is similar to some of the bent limbs of the cedar trees she lies under. The clothes she is wearing was modeled from a 1950's bathing suit with the added see through skirt, painted in to add mystique to the image. The purple mountains in the foreground is reminiscent of the paintings of Maxfield Parrish who greatly inspired Sam's earlier works such as this one.
If you are searching for sensual art that is tasteful and well executed, then Beneath the Cedars might just be for you.
