11-09-15 Here's the 3rd canvas in this series, well underway, with only the accent lines to go (tomorrow, perhaps), and possibly some minor color adjustments.
When my adult daughter found out that I was painting this series, she was very pleased & supportive. It's an issue near & dear to both of us. During college, my daughter struggled with her weight & her image of herself. It was so hard to see her, who is so precious to us, go through all of that! But she went to a counsellor, & she worked very hard to change her perception of herself. I'm so proud & grateful that she had the courage & determination to do that, & I'm delighted that she's a happier, healthier person today!
She's glad that I'm trying to raise awareness, through my artwork, hoping to help others who might feel as she did.
I'm busy working on my blog posts. Watch this space!
