Garden of Delights ~ Hortus deliciarum ~ Herrad von Landsberg
This is beautiful and ghastly but it also kinda looks like a Topps trading card from the 1970s.
A couple people have asked me about posting my artwork in the past, and i think i miiiiight do so in the somewhat near future. i’m actually really excited to be doing my next painting (which is a shocker considering my recent existential art school crisis), which has to do with fat body politics and the way fat women are perceived in life and in the media. I don’t want to talk about it yet because i’m still messing with the composition, but if it turns out okay i might post it.
i’m posting this now because i might actually hold myself to it we shall seeeeee.
