Art Description

Painting: Oil, Wax, Resin on Wood.

I created this painting as part of the series."Women Who Changed the World.Rosa Parks has been a symbol of bravery.

On the afternoon of December 1, 1955, 42-year-old African American Rosa Parks, returning home from her job as an assistant tailor at a Montgomery, Alabama, department store, boarded bus 2857 on the Cleveland Avenue line. When told to give up her seat for a white man, she refused and was arrested for violating the city’s racial segregation laws. Her act of civil disobedience precipitated the 13-month Montgomery Bus Boycott, which was led by Martin Luther King, Jr.
After Parks died at age 92 on October 24, 2005, she received a final tribute usually reserved for statesman and military leaders when her body was brought to the rotunda of the U.S. Capitol. More than 30,000 people filed past her coffin to pay their respects.

Of course I had to include Rosa Parks in this series.

I painted over older encaustic abstracts with oil. I carefully fused the oil into the underlying wax for permanence. I scraped the background with a razor blade to had dimension and a sense of time.

I hope the viewers will feel the poise and calm temperament of this woman.
