Finding Beauty (Part 2)

Leets t

I found a new blog today called http://yayeveryday.com/.  It contains lots of beautiful/funny/interesting pictures-n’-stuff from the internet universe.  This picture, in particular, by an artist named Leets, caught my eye.  The links on the page will take you to more info on the artist.

I am particularly drawn to artists who depict larger ladies in a beautiful, artistic way.  There is something subversive in today’s climate, even edgy, about highlighting a kind of beauty that is often dismissed (ridiculed?  beaten out of us?)    There is something empowering about seeing yourself in beautiful artwork.  As a woman who is learning to own my body and my beauty, it is refreshing to see an artist doing the same with ink, paint, and pencil.
