I love my body

I love my body24x36 inchesAcrylic on tarpaulinJuly 2016It took me 35 years to be able to say that I love my body. When I look at the mirror every morning, I now honor my skin, hair, eyes, nose, belly, legs and feet exactly as they are. Bodyshaming is something we all do, whether to others or to ourselves. We can really do more to encourage each other to love our bodies.#bodypositive #acrylic #painting #montalutstudio
