ABOUT THE ARTWORK

I tried to get this done before International Women's Day, but I was distracted on other projects and my hand needed a rest. When I took the photo for this piece on the streets of Mexico City, I felt that despite the wear of the elements she had remained strong and become more beautiful in that strength. I struggled with the inclusion of an abstraction of a man in the image. I didn't want it to overwhelm Joan in the composition and imply vulnerability. Quite the opposite came out of this for me. Again, as on the streets, her strength kept pushing through.
