Today is a historical moment. Thousands of women from all over the world came together to march, to let their voices be heard. I wasn’t able to attend the march but I was watching it all day on TV and through the posts from my friends on social media. Interestingly, I did not feel angry or frustrated at the end of the day. It was peaceful and importantly, it was inspiring to see so many strong women coming together, united, speaking out.
At the same time, I have not been painting for a while due to travels and family stuff. I was finally able to get a few minutes at my art table today and she popped up. I love her softness. But don’t underestimate her, she may look soft on the outside but she is strong on the inside. This girl will fight back when needed.
To all the women who marched today, I salute you and I am with you. I am proud to be a woman.
