This is a tiny painting, not much bigger than you would be seeing if you're…
Another painting of mine is about to jetset over to Barcelona as part of an exhibition for International Women’s Day.
It will be at the MEAM Museum in Barcelona, Monday, March 8 2021, and until May 2 2021
This painting is of Elena Kats-Chernin and her sister Laura. They have a lovely connection. They don’t hug much in real life, so it’s special that they are in the painting.
Here are a few interesting facts about International Women’s Day:
- It’s a public holiday in quite many countries, and women’s rights are gradually being recognised more.
- The earliest Women’s Day observance, called “National Woman’s Day,” was held on February 28, 1909
- In 2011 In Egypt, Cairo, hundreds of men came out not to support, but to harass the women who came out to stand up for their rights as the police and military stood by watching, doing nothing to stop the crowds of men. This is just one example of such things…so there’s still a lot of work to do on a global scale.
