The Average American

As I am doing portraits of different types of people, I am sure to create some portraits that may offend. But I guess art shouldn't necessarily be easy to swallow. For so many reasons, obesity is a major problem especially in this country, so it is a type I definitely could not omit. This painting is based on a picture I took of a woman at the MN State Fair. As always, I am not using her face for the portrait.
