We finally have some impressive (though not traffic-stopping thus far) snow going on here right now as we move into Winter Solstice. As I watch the flakes sift down outside I’m feeling content and warm and like I want to share some fat-positive art to ring in the end of the year and celebrate the turning back towards longer days and shorter nights!
Here is the piece I did a bit ago that I’ve called “Mermaid’s Fantasy”. She’s a blue-centric Betta-fish-esque fat mermaid.
“This big and beautiful woman is a Betta Fish Mermaid. She is not flashy red or purple, simply a strong mix of beautiful blues.
She does not dream of leaving the sea, but often wishes the delicate creatures of the land and air might visit her instead.
Even if they ARE likely to be found on the coast, I’m not too sure the very fragile Monarch Butterfly would be willing to travel out to visit…but perhaps one hardy soul might!”
I had the sketch around for her for a LONG time and was very pleased with the finished outcome.
The other piece I am sharing is not my own line-art drawing but I did the coloring and background. She’s an Autumn Harpist (to me anyways!) and I posted the finished work last night.
“[I] love the thought of this lovely harpist ringing out the Autumn with a few last notes before winter settles in for good; before those last cold drops of earth-soaking rain turn to snow!”
So whether you’re loving this snowfall, dreading it, or living elsewhere and enjoying (or not!) your own different kind of weather; I wish you a happy Winter Solstice.
