I don't feel the desire to play on certain words lately..
which is difficult when designing cards.
Do you think of the 'Love you' spread online or are you spreading something else?
Do you think of the seeds you plant?
I don't get it when I see a woman, especially with daughters post images of women in bondage. I don't understand the message any woman is sending out or teaching with a tied up and gagged woman - how is this thought of as cute anylonger?
What you do in your own bedroom is up to you, none of my business.
This is about what you put on-line for all to see all the time.
I sure do not find that image "cute", even in a creative way.
Why am I offended by it? I don't know... Maybe I find this visualization in particular offensive because for the last few years I've educated myself on missing Indigenous women in Canada. How could any eduacted woman be happy about sharing images of tied up and gagged women, knowing that there is a river they drag & routinely find women this way. All over Canada.. along highways.. all over the world.
Ask parents, sisters, family if they find these images "cute". Will you find it cute when your daughter is brutalized by her partner - yet you seemed to think it was o.k. to encourage this sort of idea? Nope. I don't get it.
Women around the world not being Loved for the beautiful beings that we are... but brutalized, probably a few on Valentines day after a few too many drinks.
It happened to me once - long ago. It happens to many, too many times.
If only this was not reality, to not discuss it - keeps it continuing.
Am I being self-righteous? I don't know. I don't think so - I could care less what turns someone on... I have more importnat things to focus on & paintings to preoccupy my mind.
I'd rather be considered self-righteous than someone who's ignorance encourages negative treatment twoards another.
Or makes light of a really bad situation.
This is for all the crazy cat lovers * I enjoyed painting the sloths -it's also a challenge to think of how things will fit' in a heart...
I might try 2 bears. ;)
Show each other some love.
Please think about the ideas you encourage. I am trying.
Is that not why we are here?
Wash your hands!
