I’ve been so angry lately at all the news our stupid president is getting. The way he is systematically removing all the great things President Obama did for our country.
The fact that he is trying to repeal Obamacare and the fact that he is getting rid of DACA has just put me into a fowl mood.
I was looking at my pussy hat a friend made for me and got so inspired. I decided I wanted to paint a nasty woman painting. I don’t know if it will help empower women but it sure helps me and it really made me feel better about being an artist. I used to be so political and radical and as I’ve gotten older it seems like I’ve become more like milk toast. Not wanting to make waves or cause anything thought provoking. I have quieted my anarchist self. And that makes me angry too!
I don’t want to go softly into that night anymore, I want to go yelling and screaming for my rights and the rights of my fellow women, those who can’t speak for themselves because they’re afraid of getting deported, and those who are just afraid. I’m sick and tired of keeping my mouth shut and being afraid of offending people.
Below are pictures of my art journal where I practiced painting and sketching what I wanted to paint on a large canvas. The canvas I chose is 18″ x 56″ and I’m really happy with how it turned out. It will be the first of many paintings to come.
Below is the finished painting. Short video clip. It is acrylic paint and mixed media on canvas.
I will be selling my Art at the Jack of All Trades Event on August 12th. I will be there selling my Encaustic Paintings, Encaustic Monoprints, Encaustic Greeting Cards, Art Prints, Handmade Art Greeting Cards, Quotable Cards and Art, Accordion Books from large to mini as well as Mixed Media Art on wooden panels.
