The contemporary American painter, Charles Pace, has created this image which Francesca finds delightful:
It is called Fat Hula Girls, and Francesca loves it. Are they not very buxom and soft? Do they not seem to be having the time of their lives?
Francesca does not know whether Pace meant for his painting of the Fat Hula Girls to be delightful or ironic, but she doesn’t care. It is a fun painting which, in the eyes of the Francesca, celebrates the Appley goodness of the round, fleshy belly and the fun that can be had with the smooth and squishy upper arms. Francesca wants to dance with these ladies!

(Decorating tip: Pair “Fat Hula Girls” on the wall with one of these other images by the same artist; the colors of the paintings recall each other, but the “stone faces” paintings temper the kitch factor of the Hula girls. Of course, the posters would be big attention-grabbers, so best to use them in rooms that are either very minimalist or which have colors that blend well with the art)
