James Franco has found a way to get more up close and personal with buddy Seth Rogen. Like a scene out of Titantic when Jack paints Rose in the buff, Franco brings to us his artistic renderings of Rogen—completely naked on all fours.

The jack of all trades—actor, director, writer, teacher, New York Times selfie expert—can now tack on painting to his oeuvre. (Oh wait, let's also not forget how he tried picking up on a 17-year-old girl recently as well.) Franco posted on his Instagram on Sunday snapshots of his artwork of Rogen, or "Sleepy Bear" as he refers to him in his paintings. We have the two-toned, red-and-blue colors surrounding Rogen as he sensually bends over in one of the paintings. Franco emblazoned the words, "Seth Wants It!" across the piece of art. There's also Rogen lying on his frontside, legs kicked up, revealing his testicles. Very, very deep stuff.

The two have been kicking up the part of their "romance" since they spoofed Kanye West and Kim Kardashian's music video for "Bound 2" and got sexy together.

It looks like these paintings are part of two art shows Franco will be having in Los Angeles and New York. He tweeted:

There may be more to Franco's potential art show than just Rogen paintings. Franco also posted to Instagram his "selfie painting":

As for the Rogen artwork, what has seen cannot be unseen.
