Bravo!

Thank you, Petco!

F&V!

Thank you, Tisha!

Thank you, Sue! It seems the time is definitely right to make a stand for all of us that are not perfect size 7s, not just for our own sake, but for sons and daughters and grandchildren so they don't have self-esteem, or judgement of others, riding on false standards.

Peri this caught my eye in the group I opened it up for a closer look and read the discriptiion. I think this is a wonderful series go for it!!. People often are shallow and do not look at what is inside someone. I always look for what is in someones heart because truely that is what matters. Voted

Thank you, Dagmar! This Calypso is learning ... she braves learning a new skill, and wearing a bikini ... even if she's not QUITE prepared to do so in the daytime, when the beach is populated! Rather close to my heart.

Peri, Calypso lives her life, takes it as it is and is on top able to have a lot of fun. A strong woman and an admiring, beautiful work. Dagmar

Thank you, Susan! She's sort of, to me, the mascot for all women over forty ... be bold! Be daring! Try new things ... even if you start out with them in the middle of the night so no one can watch the learning curve!

Thank you Peri for this loving message! And, this fun, beautiful woman having fun in the sun! Love her bright nails to match the surf board!

Thank you, Carol! I'm glad you like it!

This is delightful and so original. v

Thank you for the feature of Calypso in Stop Time With Art, Jose!

Thak you, Matt! I'm rather fond of her myself! No way I'd be brave enough for a bikini or two-piece anymore, though!

Fantastic image Peri and great message. It really is what's on the inside that counts. Though, to be honest, I 'm sometimes guilty of judging women on their looks - though I much much prefer a fuller,curvier figure. She's gorgeous!

Thank you, Darren! I'm going to begin "indoctrinating" my granddaughters early with gender neutrality and self-esteem!

Great painting Peri. It also sends a very great message love it.

Beautiful painting of a beautiful woman.....v

Peri Craig replied:

Thank you, Athala! Hoping in some small way to make a difference.

Peri, Love this work for what it represents. We need to remind each other our inner beauty is what counts most.

Peri Craig replied:

Thank you, Louise. It is so easy to forget, and yet how painfully we remember when we see our daughters and granddaughters falling for the same media lies!
