Aleah Chapin, an award-winning artist based-in Brooklyn, New York, explores the aged beauty of older women in remarkably detailed oil paintings. And yes, they are fully naked!
I know, viewing the artwork is a little shocking at first. But once you embrace its artistic beauty, you will definitely appreciate and respect the portraits depicting the naked bodies of grandmas, mothers and aunts. More so, this experience would probably provide an opportunity to love and value your very own body as well.
I have not much to say. I’ll just have these amazing paintings speak for themselves.
