"Impetus" International Women Celebrate!
The holidays have really been great - a lot of time relaxing with my family and friends but it has taken a toll on my usual work schedule ; ) So today I thought I'd post my offering for International Women Celebrate!, a show celebrating the centenary of International Women's Day at AyrSpace in Ayr, Ontario. The story behind this painting is that I started thinking about how International Women's Day began. And then wondering how all great social movements begin. It occurred to me that most likely things started in kitchens: people being pissed off over a cup of coffee. A hundred years later people are still gathering over tea and coffee discussing, celebrating and arguing issues of the day.
