We have just the one body - this body

Today I have been drawing again with fellow artists under the guidance of Leanne Vaughan-Phillips (find her on Facebook).

I'm tentatively finding my way back into drawing.
The body we are given should be celebrated. So often we see such negative imagery or press comments on 'celebrity' bodies. We are told how we should be.

I worry about how my body looks - how deep these messages reach. Messages from our own upbringing can also make us fear and be disgusted by our bodies.

I admire those who have confidence in the body they have - and I am trying to reach that place through observation and reflection. Thank you Leanne for giving us this opportunity.
