RBG Women’s Empowerment Art

Woman’s empowerment art reminds me of Ruth Bader Ginsburg who was an expert in empowering people. Her brush was impenetrable logic honed to precision. Her canvas was state and federal courts. Her body of work was seven decades of litigation and judgements on gender equality. Let us never forget the dedication one person can have; the changes one forward-thinking mind can make; the immense difference a singular woman can sew; and that’s not women’s work…or is it? When thinking of women’s empowerment art RBG will always help to inspire my creativity and voice as a female artist.

A video to capture the process of creating my version of women’s empowerment art. To hold suspense, I reveal who I am drawing until the end, when I do detail work on the Justice’s famous hallmark, her collar. I find that fluid, confident movements capture a more honest subject. Therefore, no line is a mistake. I create as much from my intent as from the reality of what I have drawn.

R.I.P. R.G.B.

Justice Ginsburg died September 18th. Her surprising and devastating death was 46 days prior to the 2020 presidential election. Her dying wish: that she not be replaced until the new president was sworn in.

The Supreme Court Justice’s request was ignored. President Trump nominated Judge Amy Coney Barrett just eight days later. (Hours after sitting Shiva ended in observance for the late, great Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The Republican Party worked overtime to meet required hours for debate and swore the judge in after a 31 hour senate marathon.

During the last Democratic president’s term, the same party—those same senators—prevented Obama from replacing the late Justice Antonion Scalia, who died 10 months before the 2016 presidential election. Republican Senators blocked the president’s nomination of Judge Merrick Garland; decrying there wasn’t enough time to properly vet a new candidate. It was just the type of hypocrisy Ruth Bader Ginsburg detested and fought all her life to eradicate. Justice Ginsburg will be missed.
