The thing about this is that sculptures like these in art history were for the male gaze. Photoshop a phone to it and suddenly she’s seen as vain and conceited. That’s why I’m 100% for selfie culture because apparently men can gawk at women but when we realize how beautiful we are we’re suddenly full of ourselves…
Girls don’t let anyone tell you loving yourself is vanity.
“You painted a naked woman because you enjoyed looking at her, put a mirror in her hand and you called the painting “Vanity,” thus morally condemning the woman whose nakedness you had depicted for you own pleasure.” ― John Berger, Ways of Seeing
when someone asks if they can draw or write you a thing
a paranormal mockumentary show in the style of the office/parks and rec
revolving around the lives of employees at a hokey haunted mansion tourist trap that turn out to be actually hella haunted but most of its spirits are either benevolent or ineffectively malevolent
10/10 WOULD WATCH
SOMEONE MAKE THIS SHOW HAPPEN,
Artist Samantha Keely Smith paints breathtaking abstract landscapes that resemble the swirling waters of the ocean. Using oil paint, enamel, and shellac, Smith builds up multiple translucent layers of color, alternating between soft brushstrokes and large, sweeping gestures to evoke crashing waves, surging tides, and stormy floods.

kate’s trouble-free guide on how to tell if drawings are reposts:
- the op will not have an art blog, regularly post art, or have an art tag. basically, if they don’t also have some other work in a feasibly similar style, they probably stole it from somewhere else
- the images are often cropped weirdly. this is because the op is lazy and can’t even screenshot things properly without wrecking them
- the images might be arranged in an order that doesn’t make sense. this is because the op has browsed an artist’s tumblr, screenshot things haphazardly and then re-uploaded them. as a result, the post will probably have no clear direction or sense of continuity
- there’s no artist comment, and trust me on this: we artists like to say why we drew a thing. we will rarely just post a drawing with no caption - and if we DO post one with no caption, our tags will have some frantic garbled explanation of the drawing or why we did it or what went wrong when we drew it. trust me.
how should you deal with a repost?
- don’t reblog it
- don’t reblog it
- please don’t reblog it we artists are poor and frazzled so at the very least, please let us keep our dignity!!
also people should keep in mind that sometimes when an artist says “doodle" what they mean is "stress-free art”. that doesn’t necessarily mean that the “doodle” they made is something that they didn’t work hard at or didn’t spend a long time on. some people get really out of control when they see impressive works and the artist write “just a doodle” and they think, this is it, this is the end, im no longer going to be an artist, how can i possibly compare myself.
sometimes “just a doodle” means “not working on commissions or something work-based”, so don’t fret yourselves. plus not everyone who posts art plans on a bunch of people seeing it. you don’t really expect your stupid poorly written artist caption to be seen by a lot of people via reblogs,
