Don't just live with it!

Yesterday I showed how I'd found my inner self (well, what funky bones I have any way), so now I needed to flesh them out a bit...
I started the face, using watercolour to add shadow...

And was going to paint Zebra patterns on the skin, but then I thought
Why not just "Love the skin I'm in"

I deliberately didn't add hair, eyebrows or lashes, as this page is about skin....and I know it should be "you're" not "your", but I liked the balance better this way.

It's "Your" skin...don't just live with matter it's colour or texture

it is the one thing guaranteed to hug you 24/7 :D
Give yourself a hug!!! You deserve it :D XXX 


  1. Great idea and execution Gina! I'm giving myself a hug as I type....and I will def. try to love "the skin I'm in".
    Hugs xx

  2. Zebra prints would be interesting. :) But she/you look fantastic in your skin. :)

  3. I just hugged myself and gave me a few kisses, too, just for fun. Now you *waits* Lovely girl, she needs no hair, she was pretty skin and her heart... even better ;-)

  4. This is perfect and I needed this today ;o) Thanks Gina ;o) Hugs ;o)

  5. Fabulous painting. Love the background colors.
