Illustration Friday - Fat

Illustration Friday 05.05.06
Theme: Fat

Thanks to my daughter Molly for taking the picture of me. Self-portraits....I've been doing a lot of them since beginning my blog. A healthy narcissistic impulse I think (hope), as I've always loathed pictures of myself. Deciding to use my image for artistic expression has been freeing on many levels.

I loved this Whitman quote, and it absolutely made me want to hug myself, my fat and bones, and just love it all.... ( Also my just-finished shrug, more pictures of which I will post next entry!)
