In Praise of Some Women in Brazil

With the Summer Olympics coming and the warning alert to women traveling to the area due to the Zika virus, it is worth praising some women in Brazil who are already there.

I recently discovered these murals in my list of saves and coincidentally they happen to be by Fin DAC, the artist featured in my previous post, and Christina Angelina, who also paints beautiful street portraits of women.

I'm an artist, wife and mother of two boys. I started my illustration business, The Occasional Palette over 23 years ago, when my oldest son was an infant. Once my children were in school, I began painting decorative, faux finishes and murals through my second business, Casart, now over 19 years old. Now, my third business, Casart Coverings is a springboard from my second. Click on the link on the sidebar to see innovative, custom, designer wallcovering, removable and reusable wallpaper.
