Embrace Yourself

Published September 25, 2021 by Maryanne

A few months ago in art class we did a nude drawing, using a sculpture of Venus De Milo as a model.

Of everything we do in art class–painting, crafts–drawing is my absolute favorite.

I wanted to add the side message “Embrace Yourself” because we all should. I purposely made one breast a little larger than the other and fuller thighs. Even my letters are written on the sloppy side. That is the beauty of not being a professional artist, the imperfections give the piece character. It gives surrealism to realism.
