I love this! What a beautiful portrait - and why aren't we celebrating this lush and sensual feminine shape? Who decided that skinny is better? Happy weekend to you!
I agree with Josephine whole -heartedly,I think "thicker" is healthier and more attractive, raising my daughter's to be proud of womanly curves. I love that name BTW J, so lovely and feminine. I liked it for one of my daughter's but it got overuled for Juliette instead. You always pick the most beautiful art Sarah.Be well, Happy 4th boo <3<3<3
Amen ladies! Actually, looking this over, i realize her body looks a lot like mine--a little tiny bit thicker, perhaps, but similar in the essentials :-)I have finally been coming to terms with my own feminine curves---thank God!thanks for the feedback. I liked the pic too.
I wish my boobies were that pert!Love the painting - I have always been drawn to the curvier gals - probably because I knew I'd grow to be one!
what thinkest thou?
