Ready to Hang

My idea is a woman who is sitting on a bed that appears to be her throne. She is naked, her skin will be a light tan and bruises will blotch her skin. She throws a blank stare just above the head of the viewer of the painting. In her hands she holds a cat that is sleeping. Her body isn't the generic idea of beauty. She has rolls. Her breasts point down to the floor. Her legs are thick and her feet are wide. But she is beautiful. Her hair is cut short and mangled. She has been beaten, a fact anyone can infer by the presence of the purple blemishes, the cat seems absent so she is alone yet finds comfort in pleasant memories. The antlers symbolize a coming into one's own self. While antlers are typically used to signify a male identity, she wears them proudly and adorns them in flora.

My name is Janna Leigh Webb. I'm a small town girl from Southern California and an aspiring illustrator, photographer, and animator. I've been creating art since before I could remember, and have seldom thought of anything else than to pursue that dream.
