Last night marked the debut of six pieces from my Power of SHe project. They were premiered at the Mosaic art and fashion show, celebrating the 20th anniversary of Pride in Saskatoon. It was a sold out event, with spectacular performances, beautiful clothing, and an outstanding array of artistic work. I was proud to have my work featured at such a fabulous event. My congratulations to the Saskatoon Diversity Network for putting on this groundbreaking event, and my thanks for all their hard work.
Now, without further ado, I’d like to introduce you to the six pieces I debuted last night. As many of you are aware, The Power of SHe is a personal project of mine focusing on how we, as Women, choose to define ourselves vs how society and the media seek to define and confine us. I hope it forces people to take a closer look at what makes us who we are, and find those things which unite us. As Women we should be supporting one another in our choices, finding strength within ourselves and helping to empower our sisters. That is what The Power of SHe is all about.

Tonight, my friends, is a very simple blog post. I’m far too exhausted to do more. Actually, I went down for a nap at about six, and fell asleep without taking any melatonin. Seriously, I don’t nap because I don’t fall asleep without taking it. And I napped. Would have stayed out for the night too if I hadn’t needed to get up to put the girl to bed. LOL
I’ve just been pretty wiped lately. Lots of things needing my attention in preparation for the Pride art show. In the end, I’ve decided to keep it simple, and may actually be doing rather small scale printing too. It turns out I may be able to have one of the square support pillars in the space – which would be an interesting way to break up my work and display multiple smaller pieces. I generally prefer larger scale work. Nothing like a photograph at 20×24 or larger to inspire thought and discussion… but I do like the idea of keeping things clean and being able to display more pieces than I’d have been able to otherwise. So we’ll see.
Okay, off to bed for me. I’m just far too exhausted to be on here right now.
Night all! Be good to one another!
