Work in Progress…
You Be You – a painting in progress. In this piece I have one side of the canvas with names of women super-heroes from comic books and TV and the other side has womens’ names from the bible. I was thinking about how women try to live their lives and who we need to emulate.
More personally, how I should try to live my life. On one hand, I’m trying to reach an understanding with religious teachings and on the other hand I love strong women in comic books.
So who should I really be like?
I would love to have the body and strength like Wonder Woman, be as cute and brilliant as Kim Possible or perhaps have the courage of Queen Esther. As I was painting and asking my self these questions, I realized,
I can’t be any of these women.
The comic book characters are fake and the biblical characters, I only have faith that they are real. Eventually, the answer came to me…
Follow your heart – You be You!
Deer in headlights
There’s a lot going on in this piece – and it still needs to be tweaked a bit. Did you catch the deer in headlights?
It’s a metaphor (to me anyway) of what women go through trying to be the perfect wife, mother, provider, housekeeper, cook, friend, You Be You– a painting in progress. blah, blah blah. And, I put Jezebel dead center. Nothing wrong with owning your sexuality! How many (great) biblical men had wives, concubines etc.
So, as I continue to work on this piece, I would love to hear your thoughts on what women you emulate and why.
