I believe in ripping off the band-aid, so let’s get to the point. Someone very close to me was brutally raped. That was very, very bad but we’re getting past it and it’s becoming a bad thing that happened in the past, not a defining attribute of one’s own self. What I was not prepared for, in confiding to some friends what had happened, was the reaction I got from a few people. Someone I’ve known for years actually wanted to know if the person had been drinking (no) or how they were dressed (t-shirt and jeans). Seriously? It made me angry that people are still so uncomfortable with the notion that a man just took what he wanted in a violent, brutal way that surely the woman must have done something that gave him the green light to behave that way.
I really don’t think it matters if a woman is drunk and nekkid as the day she was born, if she isn’t into sex with you, then don’t push it, and don’t rape.
I’ve done a few pieces, this is the third in what is turning into a series.

I knew someone once that hated anything that was outside her comfort zone. And let me tell you, this chick’s comfort zone was microscopic.
She hated people with tattoos, said they were scummy and she wouldn’t sit by someone on a plane that had them. Yet, her husband had tats.
Anyone and anything unique was suspect and hated on.
She made me tired to be friends with, so I stopped.
Imagine all the people you’d never have the pleasure of knowing if you just judged a book by its cover?
And I love making Artist Trading Cards or ACEO’s (Art Cards, Editions and Originals) – you’ve been warned.

This piece was too big to put on my scanner and my camera was just sucking and washing out the colors. Skinney offered to throw my camera at the wall because he’s good like that, but I did a little video instead 🙂
This is a video description of a 10-inch by 13-inch watercolor of 3 bbw divas dancing on the ocean shore.
Many people believe the moon controls the waves of the ocean.
Did you know it’s three blue goddesses that come to dance on the shore with their seaweed hair waving in the ocean breeze.
They dance for the moon and make her smile.
They stomp and wiggle and they dance to a tune only they can hear – I’m pretty sure it’s techno and they keep the motion of the ocean going in and out as it should.
