Hilda the (lost and found) Voluptuous Pin-up

So I found a new love today, and her name is Hilda. She's a buxom redhead, who's a bit silly and a bit clumsy, and well...quite a bit like me. Maybe that's why I find her adorable...because I'm narcissistic and see myself in her.

After finding several stashes of her images on google, I decided to go a little further and actually find out about the artist. This article from Daily Mail gives a good summary worth reading.

And here are a few of my favorites...





I realize she's a bit rounder than her perfectly thin counterparts of the 50's, but damn...I think she's got some lovely curves...soft thighs, a round belly...just the kind of girl I find to be the sexiest. Plus, she seems to just have more of a human element that other more main-stream pinups. Don't get me wrong, I love those, too. Elvgren and Vargas were simply amazing artists who both had a keen eye for the beauty of the female form. That being said...I think Hilda looks a lot less breakable that the others. Just sayin.

New Project

So...I'm currently working on a new project. Yes, that means neglecting old ones, to some degree. And yes...I'm keenly aware that the post before last promised my avoidance of hibernating.

I'm not hibernating. It's more like gestating. I had to go blank...whitewash the canvas...so that I could create something new...and lasting.

It's always a process of becoming.

And just because I can't share my project yet...it doesn't mean I won't ever.

For now...it's personal. Very personal.

Do I have you wondering yet?

If yes, or if no, good.

I've had this website for several years now. It's had its ups and downs and its rebirths. It isn't over yet. It's just time to regroup and find focus. On what matters.

And what matters most is Him.

I don't make commitments easily or even well. But there are some things in life that just are, whether we want them or not. We can't escape our nature or our desires. We can refuse to accept them, of course. We can even try to quell them with other addictions. We can go numb. We can medicate. We can run away. But we can never really hide from ourselves or the ones who truly know us.
