At a recent Woman’s March in Washington, actress Ashley Judd read a poem entitled “Nasty Woman” by a young woman named Nina Donovan. It urged that we not be apathetic in difficult times. With the current political climate in North America and as the mother of two independent, strong young women, the poem gave me pause to consider, ‘What can I do?’
Thus was born The 100 Day Project. I decided to do a painting a day for 100 days of women to whom I am in some way personally connected, to applaud, honour and empower the nasty women in my life, the mothers, business women, and leaders…strong, beautiful, every day women.
Art has been a catalyst of change for so long and in this way, the best way I know how to use my voice, I hope to empower other women to show up and be brave in their lives.
I want share a huge 'Thank you!' to the women who consented to be included in this project that is so important to me.
