Consuelo Vanderbilt's long neck enables her to eat from the tallest of trees.
Acrylic and Oil on canvas board 5x7.
My first self portrait! And it just happens to be of myself, dressed up like 19th century American heiress Consuelo Vanderbilt, if she had a giraffe fursona. This is going to take some unpacking... This painting is a Christmas present for my ex-boyfriend. I'm 6'4 and he's 5'8 (on a good day) so the (very timely) cultural reference we chose to apply was that of Consuelo Vanderbilt and the Duke of Marlborough. It was one of the first of a series of gilded age marriages where old world titles married new world money, but relevant for our discussion here, also had a large height difference. Consuelo Vanderbilt was 5'8 (like, everyday), while 'Sunny' (the Duke of Marlborough) was only 5'2. So we adopted them as a mascot for our relationship. At some point, I'm not sure when, the phrase 'Consuelo Vanderbilt's long neck enables her to eat from the tallest of trees' was said, and, you know, it has excellent scansion. So for my Christmas present to Geoff I decided to bring that image to life, painting myself as the half giraffe, half Consuelo Vanderbilt monstrosity. I think he'll like it.
What if I could tell you that you have the opportunity to better yourself, inspire others, and get some side money while doing it? THIS IS YOUR CHANCE. I started my journey having no idea how much happiness it would bring me! ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
I used to CONSTANTLY get headaches around noon each day from stress. I would take a nap just to wake back up and still have a headache.. Now I replaced that nap with my workout routine. Guess what? Can’t tell you the last time I’ve had that horrible headache that haunted me everyday. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
I started to focus on myself and with that, have been able to inspire others. Let me tell you.. IT IS THE BEST FEELING EVER! My bucket is constantly being filled with happiness and joy ❤️ I have made more friendships that I would have never had without this side gig. Let me tell you these girls (@faith_fitness@syepsenfitness@alexandria_fitness@lindsyyork5) are constantly motivating and supporting me to become the person I want to be!
