Along with worldwide photography and work in his Ogden studio (easel painting, drawing, architectural design) Paul Butler is looking forward to his annual WENDOVER PROJECT, “when, each summer, we create paintings out on the Salt Flats.”
The 18th annual event will be Sept. 12. Paul describes it as a “unification and celebration of adult women of all ages (18+), races, shapes, sizes and colors. It’s free. I create the design to span across all of the [nude] bodies – celebrating/unifying.” He says that all bodies are of equal value; that women should not be ashamed.
“Women participating in the WENDOVER PROJECT speak of empowerment, freedom, self acceptance, liberation, etc. Some weep,” he says.
