Beautiful Strength

abstract figurative, woman in long dress, contemporary figure, independent woman, strength, solitudeSome of you may already know that I’m a big movie fan, and of course “The Academy Awards” are a huge event in our house.  I love the fact that this year offered so many amazing performances by women.  Cate Blanchett in “Blue Jasmine”, Lupita Nyong’o in “12 Years a Slave”, and Sandra Bullock who carried almost the entire film, “Gravity”.  The list goes on and on, and so it should.  Women have some amazing stories to tell and Hollywood captured just a few of them this past year.

I’m always inspired by the amazing women I meet, both in person and online.  Women who are following their dreams, working amazing jobs, helping those less fortunate, and going back to school when they’re long past their youth.

This painting reminds me of those women who go it alone at times, make difficult choices, but stay strong and beautiful.
