A Leather Daddy is a burly man who likes to wear leather either as a subset of the BDSM community, a genre of gay sexual expression, or both. Read about “daddies” as a genre of the gay community here.

Leather subculture denotes practices and styles of dress organized around sexual activities that involve leather garments, such as leather jackets, vests, boots, chaps, harnesses, or other items. Wearing leather garments is one way that participants in this culture self-consciously distinguish themselves from mainstream sexual cultures. Many participants associate leather culture with BDSM (Bondage/Discipline, Dominance/Submission, Sado/Masochism, also called "SM" or "S&M") practices and its many subcultures. For some, black leather clothing is an erotic fashion that expresses heightened masculinity or the appropriation of sexual power; love of motorcycles, motorcycle clubs and independence; and/or engagement in sexual kink or leather fetishism.

I'm taking my art to the next level and I'm working on some large works on canvas. These paintings have really thick paint and take quite a lot of time and materials to work on. I've been taking some of the smaller successful works and attempting to work on the same subjects again in a larger format where I can experiment with texture and mark making a little more.

Leather Men are modern day superheroes. A lot of my art revolves around the portrayal of heroic older bullish men. In my paintings I'm trying to communicate about body positivity and the beauty of the heroic male "bear." In this case I'm celebrating leather and cigar culture, and if you don't know what that is then you probably wouldn't want this painting!

This is on gallery stretched canvas which means it is stapled on the back and the canvas wraps around the sides.

You won't need to frame this painting because the edges of the canvas are wrapped with canvas and are 2-3/8" deep (see one of the photo of the back and edge above.) The canvases themselves are a work of art and really well constructed.

Wow. I've admired Kenney's work for a while, and decided to purchase this work as a gift for a friend. Seeing his work in person is totally different from seeing the photos online... the textures and colors are beautiful. Too bad for my friend, I'm keeping this one for myself! It was packed very very well and arrived in perfect shape. Highly recommended!
