women in surrealism

Since I am having to take a couple days off from my new projects, I figured I could post one of my older ones from 2015 from my series “American Wilderness”, which was my first solo show of my career at Roq La Rue Gallery:

“Vulpes vulpes”, 2015, Ball point pen, Ink pencils, Acrylic ink, Marker, Colored pencil, Graphite, and Gel pen  on Hot-Pressed Watercolor Paper, 18 ¼ inches by 24 inches (22 inches by 28 inches framed in custom black frame)

Id like to take some time to acknowledge the women’s movement today. 👧👵👱 Even though I’m Canadian, I want to post a positive image that I painted years ago. 💛Yuuta represents what my beliefs are for what it means to be a strong woman. 💪👧The snake represents her mind, which to me is the sexiest and strongest part of a woman. 🙆💖 And that she is holding the snake because she is in control of who she is.🐍✨ The butterflies represent the other aspect of fragility and freedom.💘This painting is something I created years ago that represents how I feel about what it means to be a woman. 👩❤🖼 I wanted to share it with you today as we stand together as women and people to support each other. 👭💞✌
