RBG

As I contemplated how I would memorialize the most inspiring woman of my lifetime, I read the words of eulogy spoken and written by so many other voices of our times. I watched the videos about her life and experienced the same heartbreaking loss as others who revered her. And I wondered if democracy may have died with Ruth Bader Ginsberg.

And then I opted for a bit of everything I like: painting a watercolor portrait, adding lace fabric collars (since the prompt I’d given my Muse friends this week was fabric collage!) and those words of praise she so richly deserved.

And now, what will life after RBG bring?

    📝📎💜 HELLO LOVELIES! THIS WORK IS SO GREAT. I ONLY WOULD LIKE TO CONTRIBUTE, WITH A QUOTE BY THIS IMPORTANT FEMINIST: ” I don’t ask for favors for my sex. All I ask of our mates is that they take their feet off our necks”.
