welcome to a new series i thought might be fun, and hopefully inspiring: picture this. i thought i’d like to create a curation of artwork around various subject matter, and this week i’m starting with women. because well women are beautiful, smart, powerful and strong and deserve to be celebrated. we’re also complicated creatures and i think it’s interesting to see us through the talented eyes of various artists. from some masters like Henri Matisse to some contemporary artists like renée gouin, Erin Armstrong and Ana Kraš women are seen through many different points of view. where indicated as ‘art print’ many of these pieces are shoppable, too, so check the links below if you like what you see.

    • i think you might be grasping for some negativity that doesn’t exist here. i wasn’t even thinking of color when curating this collection and since most are so abstract or line drawings etc. i don’t even think of what race they might be. sorry you saw it another way. i certainly did not wish to offend.

  1. Love seeing you turn your curatorial eye to artwork! This is a really stunning collection. If you happen to be on the lookout for other work to feature, would love it if you took a peek at my website! (linked at my name) :-)
