Item Description

Enjoy this 30" x 40" Acrylic on Canvas Painting by Tracy Piper.

I chose ‘Persistence’ as a nod to ‘Nevertheless She Persisted’ ( https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2017/02/08/nevertheless-she-persisted-becomes-new-battle-cry-after-mcconnell-silences-elizabeth-warren/?utm_term=.6d5d17ac8aaf ). A real battle cry for the women of today, a stand to be silenced no longer. 

I chose the models because I wanted to represent different races painted similarly, another hint at the name. That as women, we must keep working to put right to not only injustice to people who look like ourselves, but to understand that we are all fighting a similar fight and it will take persistence to overcome not just sexism but racism as well.
