Ok now that I gots you:), check out this awesome artist, Julie Heffernan Booty.
Artnet comments that "Heffernan’s paintings consistently focus on the same thing: a full-length female nude at the center -- always the same pale, red-haired figure, a self-portrait of Heffernan herself -- draped by elaborate costumes formed of piles of fruit, flowers, birds and other refugees from classical still-lifes."
I immediately connected with them. Their constant figure and the redistribution of classic still life objects into something more. Being a vegetarian these days, I seem to find ways to make art speak back at me about such topics...So its probably not about what I think it is, but either way super cool pieces.

Reminded me of another artist, again because in some of my own art I am working through ideas of man and animal, but Mark Ryden, another brilliant artist did a piece this year for a show called "The Gay 90's". Check it out below, a bit more in your face, but also beautiful
