International Women's Day -- Thank you to all the women in my life

Me with the painting I entered in
the 100 Years of International Women's Day show
at the Ayr Gallery nine years ago. My painting is about
happiness -- an underlying theme
in all of my work.

Today is a big day for women around the world.  So many things
are changing for us all the time, but most of us will agree
that we have a long way to go to achieve equality.  For me
this day will always remind me of a wonderful 100 Years of 
International Women's Day show in Ayr Ontario where I
met some women artists and shared space with women artists who
were, and who became friends. These women along with women
friends and artists around the world have changed my life.

So I declare this an International Day of Gratitude for all
of the women in my communities here in Toronto, in
the blog world and in the wide artistic community, and
friendship community around the world.  You have constantly
inspired me, supported me and made me feel valued.
You make me happy.  Thank you.

Have a thanking the women in your life day.
