My drawing of Martin Luther King Jr in honor of his birthday

When I think of MLK Jr. I know deep down that Trump will never prevail.

Drawing of an older male model from a figure drawing class

I have a lot of these but I’m not sure about posting nudes on a public forum. Luckily I concentrated mostly on the models’ faces.

Forget about a movie about this

We’re gonna need a whole mini series about Trump’s shit!

Watching Rachel it seemed to me that she did much more than interview Parnas. I wonder if deposing is a closer description. Man! She’s phenomenal!

A feminist painting from the heart of the 1980s

It was during the time when women were waking up to the possibilities of our potential. When the outer societal struggle that had gone on for years was beginning to be internalized. Gloria Steinem later wrote about that time as the time of the kitchen table discussions when, after rebelling outwardly against entrenched chauvinism, women were discovering ourselves and struggling to define what that meant. I painted this to explore the process within each woman to find her true self, using the Moon and the female figure as symbolism for the mystery of the inner world within each of us. A mystery even to ourselves.

Edited to add that the emphasis was never about being anti men even though I use the word chauvinist. Most men were not that way. It was about being pro women.
