women of deliberate backbone

ancient, adventurous, creative & protective

I’ve been so inspired the stories of women lately exhibiting remarkable backbone, even in light of very challenging circumstances. I think we all have a little more backbone in us when it’s required. As I created the stories of these women and the various backbones they’ve had to summon to carry on: ancient, adventurous, creative and protective.

What type of backbone is required of you right now?

As a new board member I know when some people think of Burlington City Arts they think about gallery receptions with an “art crowd” that isn’t their scene…but BCA is so much more.  If you live in the greater Burlington area you’ve been touched by the work of Burlington City Arts.

Art, Culture & Education is what makes Burlington a remarkable place to live, work, listen, play and learn.

An art’s education (BCA serves 10,000 kids a year) helps children become better students as they grow up and better leaders as they mature.

I am working on a new series and my muses are: flea market discoveries, mid-century palettes/patterns and old carnival signs.  I am trying to keep my interpretation very loose and original.  It’s so damn hard to be original.  I plan to give it my best shot this week. I’ll post as I get pieces done and I promise to show my mistakes too. Wish me luck.
