Women's Equality Day

Women's Equality Day

 “The War of the Roses” was coined during votes to ratify the 19th Amendment of the US Constitution - when Suffragists distributed yellow roses to the supporters of women’s right, and anti-Suffragists handed out red roses for opposing the equal voting rights of women.  A Congressman's red rose craftily conveyed a view quite opposite love and affection for women in society.  How curious today that the sincerest male-to-female apologies are often paired with a bouquet of flowers!

I paint my daughter, Madoka, and her dreams. Madoka means “circle,” a Japanese metaphor for peace, happiness, wholeness, and inclusiveness. When I gave birth, I named my daughter Madoka, wishing her to be generous and peaceful like the sun, calm and gentle like the moon.

Profiles in Art: Yaakov Bressler "The Golden Smile"

Yaakov Bressler is a Chemistry major, medical school applicant, and former medical researcher.  But he discovered his true profession early on - as a playwright.  He says even while pursing his science major, he was always writing.  He is taking the time now to see how far it will take him. Yaakov is a talented artist (the profile icon of Face I and Face II are his works as well) who is following a dream, and determining if he chose it, or it chose him.
