The third day of My Portfolio Week.
Today is the third day of My Portfolio Day. The theme is about female energy.
YOU MIGHT THINK OF THIS PICTURE WHENEVER YOU FEEL TIRED, DEPRESSED, AND EMPTY IN THE SPLENDID LIVES OF STARS AND PEOPLE SHOWN 24 HOURS A DAY ON INSTAGRAM OR THE MEDIA. DO YOU KNOW THAT BEHIND THE SPLENDOR, THERE IS A HIDDEN PAIN. HAVE YOU EVER FELT DEPRESSED AFTER THINKING THAT THE VISIBLE IS ALL ON SOCIAL MEDIA?
I would like to see more works that make the invisible visible, like the French painter, Jacques Blanchard who painted " Saint family (Sainte Famille)" in 1631.
Once I exhibited some paintings about a singing woman at Huntington Art Council. The woman in this picture is singing with her eyes closed. Nearby her, many beautiful flowers blossom endemically. Where women can dream and sing to their heart's content, the place I live in now. But other women in the world are deprived of even this ordinary happiness. On the contrary, they have gone back in time and sadly locked up in the past. I sincerely hope that the time will come when they will be able to laugh, sing, enjoy art, study, and dance again freely.
Does Justice for children exist? More and anything, the Justice that should be existed for the weak is also judged only by adults from their perspective. Nobody ever apologizes to the vulnerable, such as children. Yes, the strong know that there is no need to apologize to the poor. They are clever. They only care according to their interests.
On February 28, 1908, 15,000 women workers from the United States marched into New York City to demand shorter hours, higher wages and the right to vote, in honor of the women who died in a fire in a poor workplace. As a result of the fierce demonstration, on February 28, 1909, the first National Women's Day was proclaimed in the United States. In March 8th is official International Women's Day.
