In the Pink (WIP)

I love color soooo much that I rarely limit myself to just one! But there was a call for monochromatic work that got me thinking about what would I do if I had to just pick one color? I was fresh off the Women’s March, that sea of pink still swirling in my mind and I knew right away that I wanted to paint a still life of a pussyhat!  I have to say I’m tickled pink with the way it’s shaping up!

Here’s today’s progress:

New Crown for Lady Liberty

I have to share how excited I am about this….

I know the fabulous editorial cartoonist Michael de Adder from my art school days and have enjoyed his sharp and witty work for a long time now. So when I had the vision of the Statue of Liberty wearing a pussyhat early yesterday morning (after basking in the afterglow of this past weekend’s Women’s March) I messaged him…and like magic he had created this beautiful, powerful image by nightfall! Lady Liberty has been the victim of a lot of mishandling lately and seeing her like this is so inspiring! THANK YOU Michael! THANK YOU to all you marchers and knitters. Who’s up for knitting a giant one?
