"My Other Body is a Size 5"

Susan Lumsden

I spent the first 30 years of my life as a size 5 or less, the last 13 have to be at about size 16. Somehow, I've never gottentotally aware that my body is operating at this size in the universe. Consequently, I'm always bumping into things because I'm biger than I remember. Perhaps the bodies should have been covered with bruises around the hips and upper arms.

I think bodies are taken far too seriously. I love depicting "nekkid" bodies in light, natural, blitheful, silly or darn right ridiculuos positions. With a body as funny as mine, there is no way to take it seriously! The lightness in my piece is the direct result of how I'm feeling these days. I am having more fun on a creative level than ever before. It keeps me giggling. I hope it's contagious.
