portrait of the artist as a small coastal foothill…..

decided I wanted a change from making fragile etherial fey folk….. so for fun decided to do a portrait of a woman of a certain age, and a comfortable build…. i tend to obsess on finding the bone beneath the skin —- but even though her bones are very definitely buried, I loved making the ample volumes.

we drive up to the Sierras pretty often, and there are these hills that always make me think of driving up between a mountainous lady’s legs towards her rounded belly ….. – sometimes I wonder – doesn’t everyone see these hills like that? and if so, why aren’t people giggling more in the cars around us? I would love to do a 3d animation of her sitting up, and the cars spilling off the road around her….
