a painting in the same pose.
I really like the drawing. )

Thank you so much to all of the wonderful women in my life starting with my
mother, who was amazing, and who taught me a love of language, and nature,
and my sister who continues to teach me about relationships, as she's an
amazing therapist, and wonderful writer, and my family, my friends, my collectors, my
art directors, and all of my women friends in the wide world of blogging,
Instagram and Facebook.  Thank you.  Thank you for your talent, the beauty
and intelligence you bring to the world, for the changes you are working so hard
to bring about, for your friendship, your kindness, and your humour.  And thank
you for all of the love you've shown me. 

I have been cheered on, supported, listened to, comforted, laughed with, by women
who've made a huge difference in my life.  And I hope that as a daughter, sister,
relative, friend, colleague, teacher that I've made the women in my life happier. 
That would be my ultimate wish.  Not only that women would have equality, equal
rights, equal pay, freedom all over the world, and also that every woman I know
could have love and happiness.

Have a celebrating the women in your life day.

Thanks so much Evelyn,

It became the painting I showed in an International Women's Day show 10 years ago.
More than 100 paintings and sculptures were in that show, and the women artists
in the show loved meeting one another.
