The beauty of real women in art

So I know I write alot and complain about my life, but I do want to impress upon you how much I love the beauty and wonder of life, and of women in particular. Here is some amazing artwork that just shows real women, not overdone, over processed and objectified. I LOVE artwork that depicts women as they are in true life. We do not need to see another flawless beauty, we need to see freckles and scars, small, medium AND curvy, dark skin to the palest ivory, all smiles to all tears. We are women and need to celebrate our diversity. If we were all the same, how boring would this world be?

So here is some artwork that says something to me in some softly profound way. They show the beauty in women who have their own uniqueness that makes them way more real than any airbrushed model ever would. This is artwork that is tangible in it’s imperfections, because that is what defines us who we all are. No one wants to sit next to perfection. Fortunately, perfection really doesn’t exist. Ok, maybe in photoshop, but that’s about it.

She is just adorable yet I don’t know who illustrated this, so if you know, please pass the info along so I can give proper credit to the artist. Thanks!
