Barbara Muir ©Four years ago on this day I exhibited this painting
in a show in celebration of 100 years of International
Women's Day. 100 women exhibited in Ayr. The
collection was powered by the connections formed
by artist bloggers, a connection that has only grown
stronger among the women who were already
blog friends and met in that show.
To Marcia, Kim, Nicki, Tammy, Georgia, and Pam
it was wonderful to meet those of you who could
be there, and the other wonderful women who
exhibited. In Canada this has been a big year for
the discussion of women's rights. As I said to
a friend who runs the flower shop I go to,
"sisterhood is powerful." Four sisters
work in that store.
Have an enjoying-equality day.
Note: The woman in my painting is doing the
Whoop exercise I learned from Mike Dooley,
and putting her hands (unseen in the painting)
in the air in the posture that Amy Cuddy's Harvard
Research shows lowers your cortisol levels in
just two minutes.
