Juror Kelly E. Mara has invited two of my portraits to be included in her upcoming show, “I Am Woman, Hear Me Roar”. I was unsure about submitting these, because both women are roaring quietly. But both of them are showing strength, in my opinion. I titled the watercolor on the left She Persisted and the oil on the right Sure in Silence. The show will hang for the month of August in the TVAA’s Plaza of the Americas gallery, 700 N. Pearl, Suite G-207. Reception is August 6 from 2-4.
Friday nights I almost always attend a figure drawing/painting session. Both of these portraits were done during one of those get togethers.
