These are 3 drawings I did of the female form. Someone had commented that my art looked like a vagina and at first I was a little stunned – was I really doing that? But then I realized that it is perfectly fine for me to show the parts of the women’s body that are beautiful. From that one email, I did a series of drawings in pastels or oil pastels. Two are of the body and I like how strong they looked – strong, powerful thighs that are holding us up. And then I am attaching the drawing of the vagina that I did for the woman who first noticed that my drawings were paying tribute to women.
