"Safe Zone" by Sachi Stovall. Acrylic Paint and Black Paint Pen on Paper, 2015.

From the artist's statement: "This painting is, in many ways a reflection of myself. [...] As I continue my life journey in finding out who I am, I've realized that I am a true believer in purity and realness. This is the reason why I chose a nude painting. [...] I'm learning to love my soul and not the shell that I am in."
