Courage with heart 

I grew up with Wonder Woman as my super hero. Loved Lynda Carter and her magical cuffs. When I heard there is a new Wonder Woman movie, I brought my teenage daughter along to watch it with me. 

It was soooooo good!!! Especially Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. Not only is she beautiful, she is strong and kind. (Check out her training regime. She is strong. No kidding). What a great role model for all the young girls out there, like my daughter. And for me too! It just felt so good to watch a movie where the heroine is a female. 

I could not wait to come home and paint her.

This is from a scene in the movie where she was told not to attempt to cross the “no man’s land” as no man has survived crossing it. She went ahead anyway, driven by her desire to help the suffering people. Her courage, determination and her heart made me want to jump out of my seat and say yes! You go girl! You crossed where no man did! Felt so empowered! 

This painting was tricky because I don’t usually paint the body. Her costume was tricky too. I was pleasantly surprised at how the reflection from her cuff turned out. 

So, I am officially obsessed… with Wonder Woman. Feel like kicking some bad guy ass now 💃💃💃
