This painting is from my "Cheesecake Boy" series, depicting male models who can’t seem to keep their clothes on. In “Naughty or Nice,” the anticipation of seeing his Christmas gift gets the better of our strapping young Cheesecake Boy, although he certainly didn’t anticipate getting caught — or the punishment his naughtiness would earn him! When the gift-bearer catches him in the act, he bends him over his knee, yanks down his pajama pants (exposing festive holiday undies, of course!), and gives him a good old fashioned spanking right there. Perhaps the impatient fellow should have remembered the words of the famous song: “He knows if you've been bad or good, So be good for goodness' sake.” It’s just that being bad is so much more fun!
