Aren't You Sweet? - Not Especially
(Mixed media. Acrylics, water colours, collage. 31 x 41 cm)
A quote from the Charlaine Harris novel Dead until Dark came to my mind as I was pondering what to do for the Illustration Friday prompt this week, "Sugary". In the novel, a vampire asks the heroine:
- Aren't you sweet?
And she promptly, wonderfully answers:
- Not especially.
I really love that line!
And seeing as how women are often supposed and portrayed to be wee sweet things, when most of us really are not especially, I thought that this would be fun to work with for this prompt. I hope that you will enjoy it as much as I did working on it.
