Resolute 12×24 Oil Painting

There comes a time in your life when you have to make a stand for what you believe in despite the abuse you get for doing so.  It’s important to stand for something.  I feel this is very important right now and it inspired this painting.  She has survived a battle and while tired she is not giving up.

You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.

– Maya Angelou
