Lately, I have been blessed with unexpected opportunities to connect with several amazing zaftig artists.
Juan Alcantara, creator of the provocative and lovely “Bottoms Up (Reprised)” painting which decorates the header of my blog here, recently connected with me via the internet. I’ve since had the great pleasure of corresponding with him and viewing more of his work, which I am delighted to share with you.
“I believe that inside every skinny woman there is a round, plump, full-figured woman just waiting to get out. Or at least there should be.” ~ Juan Alcantara

Fantastic work, showing the curves and personality of the subject, true art is reflected in all the lines that you use to create your master pieces.

I would honored if someday a woman such as this would sit in a session and let me draw her. I imagine the man 25,000 years ago who carved the Venus of Willandorf was as motivated as I.
Who can resist drawing the plumpness of curves?
