"Women in Black" was part of the "Recovery Justice - Being Well" art show. It is oil on cotton canvas 36"x24" also available as a giclee on cotton canvas with a 1 1/2" mirrored gallery wrap and as a giclee on archival paper.

During the last few years many groups of people have felt marginalized and spoke up - some for the first time. This is about powerful women. I write Ekphrastic poetry to go with my paintings. Here are my thoughts on Women in Black:

WOMEN IN BLACK

Mystery is Seductive

Seduction is Powerful

Power is Mysterious

 

All three the same on the inside

Sheltering what is within from the tide

 

For women the path is opaque

The line indirect

The road red hot dangerous

Uneven precarious

 

From Suffrage to Me Too

100 years

more than 100 tears

Still living with fears

 

Rarely a team

They all dream

Of unity, hoping it is true

Feeling the echos of Me Too

The Crown they overthrew
