Made in UltraFractal 5 from a mandelbrot formula. The woman’s eye in the bottom right corner was enhanced in Photoshop CS and I couldn’t resist drawing in an eyebrow.
This is dedicated to women everywhere. I hope that one day you will all realize that God made all women beautiful. There is an inner beauty in all of us that will show on the outside when it is polished with confidence and the assurance that we are already at our best. We don’t need to paint on a new face and look like someone on a magazine cover (who also has a new face painted on).
It took me until I was in my 30’s before I was able to walk out the front door without spending 2 hours styling my hair and putting on my makeup. It was as if I was hidden inside myself, peeking out through a curtain. My husband and sons kept telling me that I looked better without it, but such a big change had to wait until I was comfortable enough and happy enough with myself to face the world without a mask.
